Investigating the response of offshore foundations in soft clay soils

Abstract:

A series of tests were conducted in a drum centrifuge with the aim of investigating the performance of typical offshore foundations on soft normally consolidated clay. The foundations consisted of spudcan footings and suction caissons. These types of foundations are being considered for use in various offshore applications including as foundations for mobile drilling rigs (jack-ups) and offshore wind turbines. A special loading device was designed so that combined loading could be applied to ...
