Abstract:

This report presents the results of scale models that use the Froude scaling law that reduces the linear dimensions of the structure and changes the material properties to avoid distortions resulting from the use of a constant acceleration of gravity. The results indicate that using coal or a mixture of coal and lead as simulant for sand can result in model tests that property replicate the full-scale test conditions.
