This document describes a validation example for the PISA design method, implemented in PLAXIS MoDeTo, for monopiles embedded in a clay soil. This validation example is based on the results obtained from the pile tests conducted at the Cowden site during the PISA project. The close fit between the PLAXIS MoDeTo model and the field data demonstrates the effectiveness of the calibration process.
