Tensile loading of model caisson foundations for structures on sand

Abstract:

The viability of multiple footing structures that use suction caisson foundations would be improved if the up-wind leg(s) could resist significant tensile loads. In the particular case of offshore wind turbines, large moments are applied at foundation level by the action of wind and waves on the structure. For a multiple footing structure the applied moment is resisted primarily by vertical reactions on opposing foundations. If a significant tension can be allowed at the upwind side, then the...
