Abstract : Twenty-six seafloor foundation case histories are summarized in a continuing effort by NCEL to collect and evaluate foundation design foundation. Analysis of such histories for both successful and unsuccessful installations is of significant value in developing design guidelines for future seafloor structures. The installations analyzed included offshore towers, habitats, acoustic arrays, and numerous other submerged structures. The case histories have two distinctive features-- installations applied only light-to-moderate foundation bearing pressures. Because of the low bearing pressures, few major foundation problems were reported. (Author)
