Abstract: This paper is the first of a set of linked publications on the PISA Joint Industry Research Project, which was concerned with the development of improved design methods for monopile foundations in offshore wind applications. PISA involved large - scale pile tests in overconsolidated glacial till at Cowden, north - east England , and in dense normally consolidated marine sand at Dunkirk, northern France. The paper presents the c haracterisation of the two sites, which was crucial to the design of the field experim ents and advanced numerical modelling of the pile - soil interactions. The studies described, which had to be completed at an early stage of the PISA project, added new laboratory and field campaigns to historic investigations at both sites . They enabled an accurate description of soil behaviour from small strains to ultimate states to be derived , allowing analyses to be undertaken that captured both the serviceability and limit state behaviour of the test monopiles.
