This position is funded by the EPSRC New Investigator Award scheme. The aim of the project is to develop advanced computer models capable of predicting the mechanical response of carbonate sands at offshore foundations from the installation stage to the operational stage. In the project, a novel continuum numerical approach will be developed for analyzing large deformation soil-water-foundation interactions. Additionally, a self-learning simulation framework based on advanced deep-learning techniques will be constructed for training data-drive constitutive models for carbonate soils.
