Jackup units on clay: structural analysis with realistic modelling of spudcan behaviour

Abstract:
A plasticity-based numerical model is developed for predicting the behaviour of a spudcan foundation on clay under combined (V, M, H) loading. The consequences of including this model in the structural analysis of a jackup unit are demonstrated, and predictions are compared with those of a traditional pinned footing analysis.
