OVERCOME THE 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 EASY
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:
and therefore you can:
With DAARWIN you can save up to 30% of your project cost, reducing costs from unforseen events and over-dimension.
