The National Geotechnical Centrifuge Facility is an integral part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Geotechnical Science and Engineering. It includes the University of Western Australia, the University of Newcastle, the University of Wollongong, the University of Queensland, Monash University and the University of Adelaide.
The NGCF is hosted at the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems at the University of Western Australia.
The NGCF aims at developing state-of-the-art solutions, based on centrifuge modelling, for challenges associated with offshore and onshore geotechnical engineering. The driving force behind the NGCF is Christophe Gaudin whose vision and energy have contributed greatly to making the NGCF what it is today.
