Abstract:

This report provides procedures for determining allowable design loads for embedment anchors under all types of dynamic loads, including impact as from a ship driving into a mooring, cyclic as from a buoy or ship riding in a mooring system during a storm, and earthquake loading. The design procedures are simplified in the form of guidelines applicable to most site conditions and are complete to the point of including the following 1 site survey requirements 2 detailed static design procedures 3 description and definition of dynamic loads 4 design procedures for impact, cyclic, and earthquake loading 5 selection and use of appropriate factors of safety and 6 description of available existing CEL embedment anchor hardware. While the procedures are designed specifically for the NCEL-developed family of propellant often termed explosive embedded anchors, they are applicable to other types of embedment anchors and screw anchors.
