Physical scale modelling offers an attractive alternative to conventional numerical modelling for predicting the response of a geophysical system. Recent experimentation with modern potting and casting materials, such as various types of resins, has rekindled the interest in scale modelling. In particular, the use of transparent resins enables one to construct models that can be used primarily for demonstration purposes, but which can also serve as scale modelling and calibration facilities.
