ISO 19901-4:2003 contains requirements and recommendations for those aspects of geoscience and foundation engineering that are applicable to a broad range of offshore structures, rather than to a particular structure type. Such aspects are site characterization, soil and rock characterization, and design and installation of foundations supported by the seabed (shallow foundations) and the identification of hazards.
Aspects of soil mechanics and foundation engineering that apply equally to offshore and onshore structures are not addressed. The user of this part of ISO 19901-4:2003 is expected to be familiar with such aspects.
