Suction caissons in dense sand, Part II: Vertical cyclic loading into tension

Abstract:

Suction caissons have been used for numerous oil and gas installations and are increasingly considered as a foundation solution for offshore wind turbines (OWT). There can be significant differences between the two offshore energy applications in the load paths and magnitudes, soil type and caisson aspect ratio (skirt length to diameter). This paper investigates the response of suction caissons in dense sand to a range of cyclic vertical loading histories relevant to a jacket supported OWT, w...
