This presentation will provide an overview of recent experimental and theoretical developments at Bristol University to aid the design of offshore geotechnical systems.

The talk will focus on: (i) new constitutive modelling techniques to predict the long term cyclic behaviour of soils and offshore mono-pile foundations, (ii) the development of new large scale experimental rigs to study the on-bottom stability of offshore pipelines and cables; and (iii) new macro-element modelling techniques applied to anchoring systems for floating energy devices, such as wind and wave energy converter.
