Piled foundations are an integral, but an expensive, component of the ever increasing $10 trillion global construction market. The growing increase in demand for energy (oil, gas and renewables) push for a better understanding of the behaviour of traditional pile elements as well as the exploration of new techniques that can lead to optimised and efficient foundations with reduced environmental impacts and improved performance. The aim of this thesis is to contribute to the advancement of more reliable and rational methods that can lead to better optimised offshore and onshore pile design using Cone penetration test(CPT)-based methods.
