Field trials of suction caissons in sand for offshore wind turbine foundations

Abstract:

A programme of testing on suction caisson foundations in an artificially prepared sand test bed near Luce Bay, in Scotland, is described. The tests are relevant to the design of either monopod or quadruped foundations for offshore wind turbines. Records are presented for suction installation of the caissons, cyclic moment loading under both quasi-static and dynamic conditions to simulate the behaviour of a monopod foundation, and cyclic vertical loading and pullout of caissons to simulate one...
