Abstract: A servo-controlled multiaxial cubical test apparatus has recently been used to investigate the behavior of the foundation soil for a gravity structure in Norton Sound of the Alaska Outer Continental Shelf. The undrained stress-strain, strength, and pore water pressure responses were measured during cyclic loading events that simulated conditions existing under the platform when subjected to realistic storm wave loading.
