The Estimation of Ice Loads From Caisson Deformations Gulf Canada Molikpaq
The Gulf Canada Resources Mobile Arctic Caisson 'Molikpaq' is a bottom founded steel exploration platform capable of year-round operation in the Beaufort Sea....

A Beaufort Sea Deepwater Production Structure
There will be a need for large crude oil production platforms in Beaufort Sea water depths between 20 and 50 m and at locations with soft seabed soils and far from readily exploitable...

Geotechnical Design of Caisson Islands
There are a number of areas where fundamental geotechnical research is required so that non-conservative, rational and safe design of artificial exploration islands can be achieved. Some...

Installation of Category I Caissons
Founding a proposed safety-related Category I structure of a nuclear power plant on rock socketed caissons necessitated using precision installation techniques. These techniques were chosen...

Drilled Piers and Caissons II
Drilled piers or caissons, also called drilled shafts or bored piles, have long been a very cost effective foundation solution for many soil profile and load situations. A distinct advantage...

Comparison of Caisson Load Tests on Chicago Hardpan
The results from two relatively recent instrumented caisson load tests from different sites on Chicago Hardpan are compared with a 'classic' large scale caisson...

Caisson
The Jamaica Bay Water Pollution Plant was renovated and upgraded from l973-l983 and included sinking a 116 ft. x 105 ft. caisson 50 ft. deep adjacent to city streets and buildings. The...

Design of Prefabricated Offshore Structures for Ice Forces
The design of fixed offshore structures to resist forces from sea ice features is reviewed. The emphasis is on prefabricated structures constructed elsewhere, towed to location and installed,...

Design of Manmade Offshore Islands for Ice Forces
Approximately sixty percent of the undiscovered oil and fifty percent of the undiscovered gas probably lies in the sedimentary basins offshore Alaska (USGS 1980). Because of this hydrocarbon...

Use of Grouting in Caisson Construction

Drilled Piers and Caissons
Drilled piers, also called drilled caissons, drilled shafts, bored piles, and cast-in-situ piles, have recently undergone a period of growth in their use as foundation bearing elements,...

Shaft Resistance of Rock-Socketed Drilled Piers

Condeep—In 400 Ft of Water, Concrete Caisson Requires No Piles
The Condeep structure consists of (1) 19 cylindrical tanks each 66-ft diam and 164-ft high that together will store up to 900,000 bbl of oil; (2) the extension upward 300-ft more of three...

Earth Retention by Drilled Reinforced Concrete Caissons
A hillside fill is stabilized by the construction of drilled reinforced concrete caissons. The fill supports a building which houses equipment important to a manufacturing process. Other...
