Abstract:

The report contains a review of the results of an engineering, development, and manufacturing program for the development of a propellant- actuated embedment anchor. The objective of the program was to provide a prototype anchor system suitable for marine salvage operations. Calculations and engineering discussions are presented to support the design concept and certain specific components contained in the system. Test results are reviewed to define the demonstrated performance capability of the anchor in a variety of sea-floor compositions. Numerous photographs and drawings are included to illustrate the various anchor system components and to document the development test operations.
