Time-critical design methods for suction caisson foundations

Abstract:

This thesis is centred around the development of a family of computationally efficient design methods called ‘oxCaisson’, that can predict the behaviour of suction caisson foundations under six degrees-of-freedom loading. These design methods were developed for applications where timeliness or speed is a crucial factor; hence the term ‘time-critical design methods’.

oxCaisson is based on the Winkler framework, in which the soil response is represented by Winkler-type soil react...
