Offshore soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering
|Publication Date:||1 September 2019|
Scope and application
The recommended practice covers guidance for definition of a soil investigation programme for establishing soil data which will be sufficient to allow for site-specific geotechnical design and assessment of gravity based foundations, caissons including suction buckets, piled foundations, jack-up foundations and pipeline foundations in a marine environment. The recommended practice also covers guidance for design and assessment of such foundations, except for pipelines.
Relevant methods for analysis of stability, capacity, deformations and settlements are covered under due consideration of type, size and shape of the structure supported by the foundation.
The recommended practice does not cover guidance for foundations in rock.
