Future work

The project will continue after the submission of the new design methodology through PhD studentships focused on numerical modelling at both the University of Oxford and Imperial College. The students will use both ICFEP as well as commercial numerical packages (e.g. Abaqus or Plaxis) to explore monopile foundation response in the wider parameter space, in alternative soils and with varied loading. A PhD project will be carried out at Imperial exploring more complex laboratory element testing.
