Extensive studies have been performed on the effectiveness of scour protection against scour erosion progression. But there is little research to date evaluating the effect of scour protection on vertical resistance behaviour of monopile foundations. This paper investigates the influence of scour protection on the vertical loading behaviour of...

Scour leads to the loss of soil around monopile foundations for offshore wind turbines, which affects their structural safety. In this paper, the effect of scour on the lateral behaviour of monopiles was extensively investigated using finite element analysis, and calibration and comparison were undertaken using centrifuge tests. Piles with three...

Europe’s historic masonry arch bridges are culturally and economically significant, but their long-term safety must be ensured. Scour effects are the most common cause of collapse, so it is necessary to carry out structural assessments to mitigate the risk and prevent potential failures. In this study, a metamodel-based method was used to...

Monopiles are the most common Offshore Wind Turbine (OWT) foundations due to their simplicity in design, fabrication, and installation. However, large new-generation turbines have led to significant changes in monopile dimensions, necessitating extensive finite element analyses and ground investigations to meet design requirements. While Cone...

Three driven precast, four driven cast-in-situ, and four screw injection piles were installed and tested in dense to very dense sand at a site in the Netherlands. Each pile was instrumented with two types of fiber optic sensors and tested under axial compression. Through these tests, a comparison could be made of how different installation...

Regional-scale assessment of the damage caused by earthquakes to structures is crucial for post-disaster management. While remote sensing techniques can be of great help for a quick post-event structural assessment of large areas, currently available methods are limited to the detection of severely-damaged buildings. Furthermore, remote...

Accurate determination of the load-penetration behaviour of spudcan footings is vital in predicting the performance of offshore structures. Often, insufficient site investigation data is a limiting factor in assessing spudcan penetration, with the selection of suitable parameters typically derived from triaxial tests or Cone Penetrometer Test...

Dykes provide protection from the risk of flooding to approximately 60% of the Netherlands, by area. Unfortunately, most of the country’s major cities lie within this zone, placing a large proportion of the population at risk should these flood defences fail. In total the Netherlands have over 3800 km of primary flood defences protecting the...

This paper describes axial load tests on three full-scale driven precast piles in the Netherlands. The piles were founded in dense to very dense river-deposited sands, a soil that is widespread across the Dutch North Sea sector. The deposit is characterised by cone penetration test (CPT) tip resistances of up to 90 MPa and offers a detailed...

Offshore jack-up rigs are most commonly founded on large-diameter conical “spudcan” foundations, which are frequently designed using traditional analytical methods for shallow footings. This paper presents the design of a spudcan installed off the coast of Tunisia. The maximum penetration depth of the footing under the available preload is...

This paper presents data from an initial development stage of an 'umbrella anchor' concept. The anchor can be pushed into sand deposit in a folded arrangement to reduce installation loads. When a pull-out load is applied to the mooring line, the anchor deploys to create a large embedded plate anchor. Physical modelling was carried out in...

The paper presents a risk assessment model, developed in the project oVERFLOw and further implemented in the project CROSScade, for determining the direct and indirect impacts of flooding hazards. As a consequence of flooding, transport infrastructure and flood protection systems can be significantly damaged and cause cascading effects on other...

One of the ways to install plate anchors in deep seabed is to drop the anchor system from the sea level and allow it to initially embed in the seabed under its own weight. Further dragging would cause the anchor to rotate and embed further into the seabed. There could be difficulties of getting the anchor plate horizontal or mooring line to...

Predicting the non-linear loading response is the key to the design of suction caissons. This paper presents a systematic study to explore the applicability of deep learning techniques in foundation design. Firstly, a series of three-dimensional finite element simulations was performed, covering a wide range of embedment ratios and different...

To identify the unknown values of the parameters of Burger’s constitutive law, commonly used for the evaluation of the creep behavior of the soft soils, this paper demonstrates a procedure relying on the data obtained from multiple sensors, where each sensor is used to its best advantage. The geophysical, geotechnical, and unmanned aerial...

There are clear advantages in the establishment of reliable, direct cone penetration test (CPT) based methods for assessment of the axial capacity of driven piles. These advantages motivated the formation of a joint industry project (JIP) under the management of the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI), which initially led to the creation...

Stresses generated from pile installation are a critical component in understanding pile behaviour. These are known as residual stresses and in Delft, the Netherlands, the response of three driven precast piles founded in sand was measured using distributed fibre optic sensing as part of a series of full-scale static load tests. The...

A joint academia-industry project, the Pile Soil Analysis (PISA) project, resulted in an empirical method for assessing the monotonic lateral loading response of large diameter monopiles. The method predicts four soil reactions, namely the distributed load and the distributed moment along the pile shaft, the pile base shear and the pile base...

Understanding how soil varies spatially is necessary in order to accurately quantify the reliability of geotechnical infrastructure. For long linear infrastructure such as flood embankments, incorporating vertical and horizontal scales of fluctuation can have a significant impact on stability assessments. This paper presents preliminary...
