Abstract:

The report presents a procedure for the design of foundations for small non-manrated and non-strategic seafloor installations. These procedures are applicable only to installations with dimensions less than 15 feet and submerged weight less than 4000 pounds. They do not require a detailed analysis of the prospective site and are applicable to all seafloor sites, except those located on slopes greater than 10 degrees and those in areas of rapid sediment accumulation, such as off mouths of large rivers. The report includes analyses of vertical and lateral loading and load resistance, tiedowns, use of materials, and foundation emplacement. Author
