GEOTECHNICAL UNCERTAINTIES

In every construction project, ground behaviour has a major impact on the final structural design. For this reason, soil characterisation is crucial. Traditionally, soil parameters are characterised by laboratory and in-situ testing. However, a high degree of uncertainty is associated to those tests. Currently, the industry tackles the problem by applying safety factors in structural engineering design. This procedure minimises risk but the geotechnical uncertainties (that can cause delays, malfunction and failure) remain unchanged and the overall cost of the project increases due to over-dimension.

OBSERVATIONAL METHOD MADE EASIER

DAARWIN overcomes the limitations of laboratory and in-situ testing by using real time backanalysis, a methodology that compares monitoring data (such as topography, inclinometers, sliding micrometers, piezometers etc.) to a digital twin (numerical models) to provide a more accurate representation of the real soil behavior, which helps in:

BulletPoint.png

(1) Currently the construction industry is responsible for more than 10% of the global CO2 emissions and this must change.

(2) Efficiency and productivity in construction has grown an average of 1% a year over the past two decades, compared with the growth of 2.8%for the total economy.

1

CREATE YOUR PROJECT

Upload your project information into the platform. Numerical models, construction progress, monitoring data, images and historical information can be uploaded.

2

DETERMINE THE OPTIMAL DESIGN

Analyse multiple design options together with different ground parameter scenarios (from pessimistic, most probable to optimistic) to determine the optimal design option and the most influential geotechnical parameters.

3

MODELS VS. MONITORING

Compare your design with the monitoring data to prove that the construction is performing according to design.

4

OPTIMISE YOUR MODELS

Calibrate your numerical models to predict the real ground behaviour to minimise construction material (less CO2 emissions), delays and accidents in your projects.
