An analytical solution has been developed to estimate the horizontal pullout capacity of embedded suction anchors. Validation has been made through comparisons with the centrifuge model test results. The results indicate that the horizontal pullout capacity of the embedded suction anchor in sand increases, reaches its peak and then starts to decrease as the point of the load application moves downward. The effect of flanges on the horizontal pullout capacity is also found to be significant.
