Abstract:

A previous review of the state-of-the-art of seafloor pile emplacement indicated that three types of mechanical systems could be developed for deep-ocean seafloor pile emplacement. The systems are vibratory drivers, screw piles, and jack-in piles. Conceptual design for multiple-pile emplacement systems using each of these mechanical systems were developed and compared. The comparison showed that screw-piles would be the most effective in meeting the given operating requirements. A preliminary design for a pilot-model screw-pile emplacement system is presented.
