Foundations for green offshore energy production in Finland: from marine investigations to the numerical estimation of undrained shear strength of the seabed deposit layers under cycling loading

Project Details


The project investigates seabed structures in the Finnish Baltic Sea. The investigations consist of remote sensing methods and on-site tests. As the available interpretation of the on-site tests data does not give accurate enough results about the seabed structures, the project will develop new methods of interpretation of this digital data. The project will also collect and test samples from the seabed, investigating and modelling their behaviour both in the initial condition and after cycles of loads, corresponding to the loads induced by wind and waves. The seabed investigation will also help to assess the risk of submarine landslides. The project advances digital methods and will help to improve the design of green energy offshore structures, such as wind turbines, leading to lower costs. The project outcomes will also help in designing infrastructure such as pipes or cables linking the structures with land, as such infrastructure is sensitive to submarine landslides.
