Deep-Sea Foundation and Anchor Engineering

  • Philip J. Valent
Part of the Marine Science book series (MR, volume 2)

Abstract

Some aspects of deep-sea foundation and anchor engineering state-of-the-art are presented and discussed. Special emphasis is given to those areas where need exists for research and development. Techniques for predicting bearing capacity are discussed, and their shortcomings outlined. Techniques for estimating the short-term holding capacity of propellant-embedded anchors are discussed, and required information on long-term holding capacity and response to cyclic loading is described. The approaches used to minimize the detrimental effects of scour are reviewed and criticized.
