Effect of soil-structure interaction on the behavior of offshore piles embedded in nonlinear porous media

The response of offshore structures mainly depends on the supporting foundation, the geologic media on which the structure is placed, and the interaction between them. The behavior of such system is strongly nonlinear, inelastic and affected by factors such as the interface behavior and porewater pressure development. In order to capture the real behavior, proper constitutive model has to be incorporated in finite element formulation. A constitutive model for the stress-strain behavior of soils and interfaces is developed using Disturbed State Concept (DSC).
