A Review of Advances in Shallow Seismic Investigation for Managing Ground Risk

Complementing traditional approaches to site characterisation, recent developments in near-surface seismic investigation techniques have led to better representation of ground structure and in-situ geotechnical properties, improving the likelihood of avoiding unforeseen ground conditions for infrastructure development.

Laboratory Test Predictions of the Cyclic Axial Resistance of a Pile Driven in North Sea Soils

Current international guidance recommends that cyclic loading effects are considered in pile design. However, methods for quantifying these effects on axial capacity are not well developed.

Dynamic and Cyclic Pile-Soil Response Curves for Monopile Design

Monopiles remain the most commonly used foundation for offshore wind turbines. Their design is governed by the lateral pile-soil response under operational and environmental loads that the turbine tower will be sub-jected to in its lifetime.

A Practical Constitutive Model for Offshore Foundation Problems Involving, Dense Sands in Partially Drained to Undrained Conditions

Despite significant advances in constitutive modelling within academia over the last few decades, the resulting advanced models are seldom used by practising engineers, particularly at the initial stages of design, due to their mathematical complexity, potential numerical instabilities, slow runtimes, and the often large number of model parameters required.

Borehole geophysics and hydraulic testing aids in determining geotechnical parameters for a nearshore cable tunnel in a fractured sedimentary deposit

Geotechnical design of tunnels requires a level of precision and accuracy in the determination of subsurface parameters that is more rigorous than most applications of geophysical logs.
