Training content

  • Introduction to geology / geophysical methods and results / resources and in-situ tests for the recognition of a soil in a marine environment.
  • Resources and laboratory tests for the recognition of soil in a marine environment / Reading of soil studies report and transcription in geotechnical hypotheses
  • Sizing rules for superficial, semi-deep and deep foundations.
  • Ground / structure interaction and practical applications for MRE systems.

Specific contribution to MRE

The module “Marine geotechnics” will enable you to understand the methods of soil property characterization, with a reading of soil survey reports, and sizing rules for the design  of offshore structures foundations.

 

 

Professional skills

At the end of the training you will be able to:

  •  understand the methods of characterization of soil properties in laboratory and in situ (geophysics and geotechnics),
  • to read and interpret the soil reports,
  • to understand the methods of sizing the connections ground-structure for the foundations of structures at sea.
