Western Geotechnical Centrifuge
It was our pleasure to hold the official opening and international symposium to celebrate the commissioning of our new Western Geotechnical Centrifuge Facility in the Geotechnical Research Centre, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Western University. The opening and a tour of the facilities took take place on Thursday, May 2, 2019, followed by an international symposium on geotechnical centrifuge technology on the afternoon of Thursday, May 2 and throughout Friday, May 3, 2019.

For the keynote speaker's presentations that exemplifies the use of centrifuge technology in geotechnical engineering. Also, several Western researchers provided an overview of the state-of-the-art techniques being developed in the new facility. The event showcased the use of scaled physical modelling for geotechnical design, construction and practice across a range of industry sectors.
