Abstract:

Techniques for predicting the maximum uplift forces which may be applied to direct embedment anchors without causing the anchor to pull out are provided. This holding capacity problem is subdivided into three categories immediate breakout, long-term static load, and long-term repeated load. Holding capacities under long-term repeated and long-term static loading conditions are poorly understood at present. It was therefore necessary to combine work from other areas with a small amount of directly applicable work to yield approximate immediate use results. For each manner of loading considered, two general types of seafloors are considered cohesionless and cohesive soil. Rock is not considered in this report. Author
