Preliminary analysis of liftboats spuncan penetration in soil
GONG Min~(1,2), TAN Jia-hua~1 (1.School of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Civil Engineering, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Shanghai 200030, China; 2.China National Petroleum Offshore Engineering Co., LTD, Beijing 100176, China)
The process, mechanism and depth of liftboats spuncan penetration in soil are analyzed, and the methods for calculating spuncan penetration discussed. Considering the process of spuncan penetrating in soil as foundation depth augmenting, the classical ultimate capacity formula is used to calculate the depth of spuncan penetration and to predict the foundation fit for liftboats.
