Abstract or Summary
  • Anchors resistant to tensile loads are commonly used in civil engineering practice. Anchors in the marine environment are most frequently used for the mooring of vessels. Only recently, with the expansion of the offshore industry, has the need to develop more reliable anchor systems become necessary. Embedded plate anchors are one such system. The purpose of this study is to investigate the behavior of plate anchors subjected to static and cyclic loading. A review of the different types of marine anchors is made. A literature review encompassing the examination of existing static theories and static and cyclic experimental observations is conducted. An experimental program has been conducted to examine the response of circular, square and rectangular plates to static and cyclic loading. The plate anchors are embedded in a saturated sand and loaded with an MTS hydraulic testing apparatus. It was found that the static pullout behavior is influenced by pullout rate, depth of embedment, and to a limited extent, anchor shape. Experimental results show good agreement with several published theories. Cyclic pullout behavior is dominated by a continuous displacement of the anchor through the soil. The rate of this displacement is governed by the magnitude of the maximum cyclic load. Anchor displacement is also influenced by the difference between the maximum and minimum cyclic load.
