Grajales, F., Beemer, R., Murali, M., Aubeny, C., & Biscontin, G. Response of short monopiles for offshore wind turbine foundations: virgin and post-cyclic capacity. 68th Canadian Geotechnical Conference (GeoQuebec). https://doi.org/10.17863/CAM.35528
Geotechnical centrifuge tests were conducted to examine monotonic behavior of low aspect ratio piles in soft clays. Monopiles with aspect ratio of two were tested in the 150g-ton centrifuge at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Initial pile test results include force-displacement for displacement controlled loading. This paper focuses on ultimate capacity of short aspect ratio monopiles after cyclic loading. Post-cyclic monotonic capacity is compared to virgin monotonic capacity for pure rotational loading over a range of eccentricities.
