Project: The application of advaced geotechnical design in dredging technology, dredgeability, storage of dredged materials

project duration
01-OCT-02 – 30-SEP-05
The interpretation of geotechnical testing results in off-shore and near-shore conditions require a more sophisticated approach as compared to the on-land interpretation of geotechnical testing. Moreover, geotechnical design of slopes, embankments, foundations in underwater conditions has to be put on another level as compared to the onland-conditions. The development of underwater geo-environmental issues in all of this is in its primary stage This long-term research agreement aims at looking at all the above mentioned specific geotechnics challenges.
