Geotechnical properties of the testing sand

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The sand used in model studies must meet a number of scaling requirements. Several types of sand were selected for screening, and one type was chosen for testing. This chapter presents the factors considered in the selection process, along with the geotechnical properties of the chosen sand.
