Innovative geotechnical in situ testing - Vibro-CPTu – cone penetration testing

Because of problems with under water sound emission and material fatigue there is interest in using vibrated piles instead of hammer/impuls driven piles for Offshore Wind projects. The pile bearing of vibrated piles is today only predicted with a high degree of uncertainty based mostly on static cone penetration testing prior to pile installation. In addition the Procedures (pile drive analysis) used to predict the speed and maximum depth of the installation process are unsatisfactory. The aim of the Vibro-CPTu project is to develop a in situ vibratory CPTu method to test the soil response to vibrations and cyclic actuations and to use these measurements for improved pile installation and design. The main objectives of the project are:
