This work forms part of the activities of the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems (COFS), which is supported by the Lloyd's Register Educational Trust as a Centre of Excellence and is now forming one of the primary nodes of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence in Geotechnical Science and Engineering. This project has received additional support from the Australia-China Natural Gas Technological Partnership Fund and the ARC Discovery program. The authors are grateful for this support and also to drum centrifuge technician Mr. Bart Thompson for his assistance during the experimental work and to Dr. Kok Kuen Lee for providing data on the original dense sand over clay experiments and for fruitful discussions regarding the work.
