Abstract: This paper presents the results of a “modeling-of-models” laboratory exercise conducted in a 1-g environment to investigate the applicability and validity of established similitude laws. The study, which was performed under static condition, considers the behavior of cohesive model slopes at small (stiffness) and large strains (failure). The test program involved three small-scale model slopes tested under different geometry scaling factors. The models were comprised of an artificial, fully saturated "model" clay (3 parts kaolinite to 1 part bentonite). The results indicate that for fully saturated cohesive soils tested under undrained conditions, similitude laws are valid for static conditions provided that three dimensional effects and boundary conditions are properly accounted for.
