The investigation involves drilling about 15 bore holes and making 30 cone penetration tests to sample the seabed 40m below the sea floor.
The remaining papers are presented in sections covering computed tomography and digital imaging for the internal characterization of geomaterials, wave propagation techniques for the evaluation of properties and processes, seismic geophysical techniques for construction characterization and modeling, cone penetration test methods, and other in situ methods and numerical modeling.
About 15 bore holes will be drilled and 30 cone penetration tests (CPTs) made.
