Together, we can learn, research and create innovations which can make a real impact on the issues of our world.
Description du poste
The project will investigate if integration of 3D-UHR (ultra high resolution) geophysical data and conventional 1D geotechnical site investigation data can provide a cost-effective approach to determine geotechnical parameters for direct offshore engineering design. The project will initially work on existing 3D-UHR datasets and geotechnical site investigation data (CPT and borehole), and involve pre- and post-stack processing of the 3D-UHR data; adaptation of current inversion techniques (developed by Industry partner Mark Vardy and colleagues) to extract all key physical properties along with sub-surface heterogeneity characterisation; and propagation of this quantitative characterisation in to foundation design.
