Drained behaviour of suction caisson foundations on very dense sand

Abstract:

Alternatives to piled foundations, such as suction caissons, are becoming increasingly viable options for fixed platforms, particularly in the development of marginal fields. Whilst pile design procedures evolved smoothly from onshore experience and theory, design of shallow foundation systems has had to be re-examined in light of the intense offshore loading conditions. This is currently being undertaken through experimental investigations, which indicate the possibility of defining foundati...
