Abstract

The Yolla A Platform was installed in the Bass Strait (Australia) in March 2004. The platform is a steel gravity based structure, and is founded on a complex soil strata comprising primarily calcareous silt. Similar material has not been encountered previously, and an intensive soil characterization program was undertaken during the design process. This paper presents aspects of the soil testing undertaken, focusing on testing of the calcareous silt. A comparison of insitu and laboratory testing performed using equipment and samples from different investigation contractors is also presented.
