An excellent source of reference on the current practice of physical modelling in geotechnics and environmental engineering. Volume One concentrates on physical modelling facilities and experimental techniques, soil characterisation, slopes, dams, liquefaction, ground improvement and reinforcement, offshore foundations and anchors, and pipelines. Volume Two includes papers that focus on shallow and piled foundations, retaining structures, tunnelling, geoenvironment, complex process modelling and comparisons of results from 1-g to high-g physical modelling, numerical modelling and full-scale testing.3 INTERPRETATION OF SHEAR WAVES 3.1 Software for data acquisition Efficient data acquisition software was ... In this case, the PROMAX 2D software, which runsunder UNIX, has been used. This software enables both automatic and manual picking of arrival time, and it also has a compete library of signal processing routines, including different types offiltering. ... the seismic tomography frames were installed in the desired position using clamps attached to the box (see Figure 4).
