Reliability Applied to Geotechnical EngineeringPhysical Modeling using Centrifuge EquipmentSoil DynamicsMarine Geotechnics


Development of the methodology to design suction caissons of submarine systems, which are subjected to combined or multiaxial loading. Combined capacity of the caissons is being determined by means of numerical analyses and physical modeling using centrifuge equipment. The final design criteria of the caissons will be reliability-based.
