Serious scaling effect has been overlooked since the concept of modelling technique was introduced. Even though dimensional analysis is the best tool when relating the model-prototype however, the scaling of stresses needs yet to be justified. This paper demonstrates the presence of scaling effect by comparing 3 model studies based on a centrifugal and conventional small model test using sand as an embedment media. This enables potential errors in direct extrapolation of the latter to field scale to be evaluated.
