Offshore and Onshore Foundation Systems

Another research interest falls into the foundation system design for both the offshore and onshore constructions. For this topic, we have had both the theoretical investigations and site testing experiences. it worth mentioning that the HKU method for open-end pile has been reviewed and referenced by various US practice code. For details, please refer to the selected papers below.
