The API RP 2GEO (2011) p-y method is an industry standard approach to predict the lateral pile behaviour of slender oil platform piles with length (L) over diameter (D) ratios > 10. However, offshore wind turbines are founded on large diameter monopiles with an L/D ratio < 8, which are rather rigid piles. There are concerns about the...

The introduction of the new 'Waterwet' led to the retesting of a lot of primary flood defences within the Netherlands, sequentially certifying a lot of levees as unsafe regarding inner slope stability. To test or design a levee an adequate amount of soil investigation is required to indicate the presence of different soil types, stratification...

In this thesis research is presented on the influence of multiple thin soft layers on the cone resistance and an attempt has been made to develop a correction factor from numerical and physical models. The presence of thin layers causes difficulties with determination of the liquefaction potential of sand deposits containing thin clay layers...

Properties of soils are spatially variable and to describe the behaviour of soils as a response to loading, this variability appears crucial in giving the correct range of possible solutions for structure response. Because site investigation techniques only provide exact information at a limited part of the site, random field simulations are...

The purpose of this thesis is to integrate the geophysical data gathered along side a future road construction site. The gathered data consists of: surface elevation data, CPT”s and several types of electrical and geoelectrical measurements. The data has been integrated both in a qualitative and in a quantitative way. For the qualitative...
