Abstract:

The report presents the state-of-the-art of marine soil mechanics and foundation engineering. The study involved an extensive literature search and personal contacts with individuals in Government and industry involved in offshore work. The fields of subbottom exploration, laboratory and in situ testing, soil properties, and marine foundation engineering were examined to delineate existing capabilities and limitations. The viewpoint taken was that of a soils and foundation engineer attempting to plan, design, and construct an offshore foundation with the available knowledge and experience. The study was limited to water depths of 600 ft or less.
