The work described here forms part of the activities of the Special Research Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems, established and supported under the Australian Research Councils Research Centres Program. This support is gratefully acknowledged. This work was part of the project Physical modelling of shallow foundations (Po No: 32001053). The helpful advice and commitments of Professor Mark Randolph were vital during the designing and course of testing. These experiments could not have been performed without the support of the drum centrifuge technician Mr. Bart Thompson.
