Experimental investigations of anchoring of open caissons by means of horizontal piles (for purposes of discussion)

Conclusions

Investigations established a high bearing capacity from a vertical load of piles horizontally jacked in at a considerable depth. Thus, the possibility of using horizontal piles for anchoring open caisson against buoyancy is confirmed.

Additional information

Editor's Note. For the wide use of progressive designs of thin-walled open caissons sunk in a thixotropic jacket it is important to solve the problem of anchoring the latter. The present article, which considers one of the possible methods of anchoring open caissons, is published (for purposes of discussion) in connection with this.
