OWC has started a research collaboration with the University of Liverpool with the objective to develop a numerical package with a soil model for investigating the interaction between the offshore foundation (particularly monopiles) and carbonate/silica sands.
 
In addition to modelling the monopile installation and studying its influence on the post-constructional performance of foundations, the model will be used for foundation–soil interaction problems involving large deformation such as spudcan penetration. As part of this research, laboratory tests will be undertaken to validate the numerical results.
