Advances in Offshore Geotechnics

Tuesday, 7 May
Technical / Poster Session
Significant advances are being made in offshore geotechnics, in the areas of site characterization, foundation design and installation. These advances are driven by a combination of research and operational experience.  The session includes topics related to pile installation, spudcan penetration, evaluation of problem soils (carbonates and sub-glacial till), laboratory facilities and the application of artificial intelligence to marine soil characterization. This session will showcase these advances and provide an opportunity to re-evaluate best practices in offshore geotechnics.
