The Technical Committee, TC2, on Centrifuge Testing of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering ISSMFE is the body coordinating the worldwide efforts to develop and promote the use of centrifuge modelling in geotechnical engineering. When the Conference Organising Conunittee was formed in February 1992, the themes of the conference were established as 1 Centrifuge modelling in the study of natural and manmade disasters, as a contribution to the International Decade of Natural Disaster Reduction 2 Latest developments in centrifuge modelling facilities and equipment 3 Centrifuge modelling of geotechnical problems with special attention to those which are relevant to Southeast Asia and Australia. It is worthy to note that Theme 1 is in fact one of the terms of reference for TC2. This theme is addressed by Professor H. Y. Kos keynote paper on Modeling seismic problems in centrifuges and Professor K. Arulanandans report on the Verification of Liquefaction Analysis using Centrifuge Studies VELACS project. In addition, more than 45 papers in this volume deal directly or indirectly with the studies of natural and manmade disasters such as earthquake effects, blast loading, wave loading, contaminant transport and flow problems.
