Proc. ASME. OMAE2011, Volume 7: CFD and VIV; Offshore Geotechnics, 765-769, June 19–24, 2011
Paper No: OMAE2011-49058
... As part of a study on the determination of the suction pile vertical pullout loading capacity, five centrifuge model tests have been conducted on a model suction pile embedded in clay. Details of the centrifuge model test procedures and results are described. Variable in the centrifuge model...

Proc. ASME. OMAE2009, Volume 7: Offshore Geotechnics; Petroleum Technology, 151-161, May 31–June 5, 2009
Paper No: OMAE2009-79170
.... The results show a good agreement with the observed data, confirming that the penetration of trawl gear will be very limited in most clays with exception of very soft clay where excessive penetration can be expected. To assess anchor penetration, a software predicting the behaviour of drag embedment anchors...

Proc. ASME. OMAE2002, 21st International Conference on Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering, Volume 4, 263-275, June 23–28, 2002
Paper No: OMAE2002-28057
... A series of tests were conducted in a drum centrifuge with the aim of investigating the performance of typical offshore foundations on soft normally consolidated clay. The foundations consisted of spudcan footings and suction caissons. These types of foundations are being considered for use...

Proc. ASME. OMAE2006, Volume 1: Offshore Technology; Offshore Wind Energy; Ocean Research Technology; LNG Specialty Symposium, 33-40, June 4–9, 2006
Paper No: OMAE2006-92058
..., reliable methods of predicting the capacity are required. In this paper results from a numerical investigation on the behaviour of the suction caissons in clays against pull-out loading have been presented. Soil nonlinearities, soil/caisson interactions and the effects from the suction on the behaviour...
