Abstract : Anchor systems for fixed ocean facilities are described. A comprehensive breakdown of anchor technology is given in terms of all possible classes and subclasses of equipment and parameters, each class and subclass being described by relatively terse verbal statements, sometimes including numerical information. The report is a tutorial exposition for managers and program planners in ocean engineering and construction. A specific objective of this report is presentation of minimal background information to be used in establishment of methods and criteria for the Navy's ocean facilities engineering efforts. The report includes a discussion of the impact of anchor technology on other areas of technology within the field of ocean facilities engineering, and, also, the impact of other technologies on anchor systems.
