Frontiers in Offshore Geotechnics III contains the contributions provided on the 3rd foreign Symposium on Frontiers in Offshore Geotechnics (ISFOG, Oslo, Norway, 10-12 June 2015), organised by means of the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI). The papers deal with present and rising geotechnical engineering demanding situations dealing with these operating in offshore building, layout and examine. Keynote papers with authors from and academia describe the state-ofthe-art in perform and conception, and an additional 191 peer-reviewed papers describe rising examine, new layout suggestions and up to date case reviews regarding the frontiers of offshore geotechnical engineering.
The subject matters of the papers include:
– Soil characterisation, modelling and checking out techniques;
– Shallow, caisson and pile starting place technology;
– Anchoring solutions;
– good, conductor and pipeline geotechnics;
– Jack-up unit spudcan behaviour, and;
– Reliability-based and performance-based geotechnical design.
New and present layout tools and top practices are provided including leading edge applied sciences and rising study principles derived from quite a few numerical and theoretical investigations, experimental programmes and box adventure. Frontiers in Offshore Geotechnics III presents a entire state of the art reference for pros and researchers in offshore, civil and maritime engineering and for soil mechanics specialists.
