Book Description

Frontiers in Offshore Geotechnics III comprises the contributions presented at the Third International Symposium on Frontiers in Offshore Geotechnics (ISFOG, Oslo, Norway, 10-12 June 2015), organised by the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI). The papers address current and emerging geotechnical engineering challenges facing those working in offshore construction, design and research. Keynote papers with authors from industry and academia describe the state-ofthe-art in practice and theory, and a further 191 peer-reviewed papers describe emerging research, new design techniques and recent case studies related to the frontiers of offshore geotechnical engineering.

The themes of the papers include:
– Geohazards;
– Soil characterisation, modelling and testing techniques;
– Shallow, caisson and pile foundation technology;
– Anchoring solutions;
– Well, conductor and pipeline geotechnics;
– Jack-up unit spudcan behaviour, and;
– Reliability-based and performance-based geotechnical design.

New and existing design methods and industry best practices are presented together with innovative technologies and emerging research ideas derived from a variety of numerical and theoretical investigations, experimental programmes and field experience. Frontiers in Offshore Geotechnics III provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art reference for professionals and researchers in offshore, civil and maritime engineering and for soil mechanics specialists.
