The theoretical modelling of a suction caisson foundation using hyperplasticity theory

Abstract:

A theoretical model for the analysis of suction caison foundations, based on a thermodynamic framework (Houlsby and Puzrin 2000) and the macro-element concept is presented. The elastic-plastic response is first described in terms of a single-yield-surface model, using a non-associated flow rule. To capture hysteresis phenomena, this model is then extended to a multiple yield surface model. The installation of the caisson using suction is also analysed as part of the theoretical model. Some pr...
