In modelling construction or installation processes, the first thoughts need to be directed towards defining the essential details which have to be modelled and, importantly, those details which are of secondary importance and can be taken into account in some approximate way. Even if approximations are made, centrifuge data will still be useful as these can be taken into account in any back-analysis, so verifying the analysis for later application to the prototype event. An example is modelling embankment construction on soft clay where the foundation CENTRIFUGES IN MODELLING: PRINCIPLES AND SCALE EFFECTS 31 behaviour is the main feature under investigation rather than the actual embankment.

G. Beasley and James, 1976). This is a good first step but there remains much development before model fills experience the stress regimes associated with roller or vibratory compaction in the field. Cohesive materials present even more intractable difficulties. The technique of pouring or raining sand from model hoppers is a direct analogue of the processes involved in hoppers and storage silos and such field processes as pressure surging in grain or sand storage containers can and have been modelled (Craig and Wright, 1981; Nielsen, 1984).

GEOTECHNICAL CENTRIFUGES: PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE 11 sophisticated and ambitious it is apparent that there will be further developments in this area. To date, a number of techniques have been used to simulate the stress changes involved in excavation—removal of mechanical support (Craig and Yildirim, 1976), drainage of fluids, lifting of bags or blocks of soil (Azevedo and Ko, 1988). No-one has yet simulated the methods of excavation normally used in the field. g. Beasley and James, 1976). This is a good first step but there remains much development before model fills experience the stress regimes associated with roller or vibratory compaction in the field.
