In this investigation, the feasibility of earthquake simulation in centrifuge soil experiments is studied. The strong detrimental effect of standing waves for such an endeavour is clearly shown. A modest degree of success toward producing a model earthquake is reported via two devices—a certain kind of physically tuned internal excitor and an effective absorbent material at the walls.
