A propellant-actuated anchor CEL 20K has been designed to function in seafloors from soft clay to competent basalt, yielding a minimum long-term holding capacity of 20,000 pounds in water depths of 50 to 20,000 feet. Thirty-six individual tests of the anchor are described in detail, demonstrating that the anchor functions satisfactorily in a wide variety of situations. Generalized and specific applications are given along with alternative installation and recovery schemes for the anchor. Author
