Overview & Mission of the NGCF
Over the last three decades, the centrifuge facilities at UWA have been instrumental in advancing our understanding of a wide range of offshore soil-structure interaction and soil behaviour problems and have contributed significantly to offshore geotechnical design, globally.
The NGCF was established in 2016 to continue this success story, and to create a foothold for centrifuge modelling, addressing the next generation of challenges facing offshore geotechnical engineering.
- Serve the academic and industry geotechnical engineering communities nationally and worldwide,
- Support research and advance knowledge in soil behaviour and foundation engineering,
- Develop and provide solutions for geotechnical design,
- Assist in training the next generation of geotechnical engineers.
