The London Geotechnical Centrifuge Centre located at City University, London is one of four currently active centrifuges in the UK. The centrifuge is well used and much of the geotechnical research at City University employs physical modelling but supported by a large element testing facility and numerical modelling capability. The centre was established in 1990 and the facility was extensively upgraded to provide more space for sample preparation and model making in 2004. In 2012 the centre is supporting 4 doctoral research projects in addition to visitors from China, Italy and UK. The focus of research is urban construction processes with an underlying theme of sustainability. Over the last 10 years the group has established a capability for tackling complex modelling problems and is currently investigating the application of smart instrumentation and control at high g.
