The vertical breakout behavior of the hydrostatic anchor depends greatly upon the anchor geometry including anchor diameter and skirt length, the soil strength properties, and the pressure difference between the ambient pressure and that underneath the porous stone. For the range of conditions studied, the anchor capacity increased linearly with increasing pressure difference provided that the anchor skirt length based upon the Coulomb failure theory resulted in an equation which predicts satisfactorily the experiment results.
