..., and the addition of flanges. The main purpose of this study is to develop an analytical solution that is capable of estimating the horizontal pullout capacity of ESAs with the loading point being anywhere along its length with or without flanges. An analytical solution has been developed to estimate the horizontal...

... configurations are used to verify numerical findings. To this end four cones were computer numerically controlled-machined from a solid steel billet of 252 mm in diameter. All cones had integral top and bottom flanges in order to mimic realistic boundary conditions. Computed predictions of buckling loads, caused...

... section of the embedded suction anchor is circular, with its diameter being equal to that of the suction pile that is used to drive it into the seafloor. Vertical flanges are typically added along the circumference to increase its resistance. Determination of the loading capacity and the dimensions...
