A view of the arm and bucket of the centrifuge. This centrifuge, in terms of radius (9.1 m to bucket floor), maximum payload mass (4500 kg), and available bucket area (4.0 m2) is one of the largest geotechnical centrifuges in the world. The centrifuge is capable of producing 75g's of centrifugal acceleration at its effective radius of 8.5m. The centrifuge capacity in terms of the maximum acceleration multiplied by the maximum payload is 53 g x 4500 kg = 240 g - tonnes.
