Abstract : The report summarizes interim procedures for designing seafloor footing foundations. Methods for determining foundation loads including the estimation of drag forces and seismic loadings are summarized. General requirements for site surveys and evaluation of the engineering properties of the soil profile are outlined. Detailed procedures for predicting bearing capacity, resistance to lateral loads and footing settlement are included along with an example design problem. These procedures are considered adquate for designing all but manned installations. (Author)
