A Geotechnical Engineering Model (GEM) attempts to quantify the impact of thousands, or even millions, of years of four-dimensional geological processes on soil behaviour. Developing a reliable GEM is not a simple matter; it involves integration of geomorphological, geological, geophysical and geotechnical data sets, and a clear understanding of the proposed geotechnical engineering purposes. This paper discusses methods of optimising GEMs, with special reference to soil conditions offshore India.

Presented at the First India Symposium on Offshore Geotechnics (ISOG 2019)
