Pipe Characteristics
Microtunneling pipe should meet the following general requirements: Circular shape with a flush outside surface (including at the joints); Strength sufficient to withstand both the installation...

Construction Support Services
A preconstruction survey of existing structures within the anticipated construction zone of influence should be conducted before any construction begins. A plan for structures that need...

Measurement and Payment
The owner shall establish a bid schedule to obtain pricing for all work associated with the microtunneling installation. This bid schedule provides the bidders the opportunity to establish...

Innovative Use of a Groin Structure: Saving Cost, Shortening the Schedule, and Minimizing Impacts
Almost any type of construction activity can pose a shock to the surrounding environment and habitat. Obviously, the extent of the impact will depend on the location of the project and...

Notes on Heavy Lift Design
The interrelated activities and responsibilities of the various organizations involved in the lift design and offshore installation of topside facilities for an offshore platform are discussed....

Findings From a Joint Industry Study on Foundation Fixity of Jackup Units
During the design storm conditions the soil supporting jack-up unit footings may be close to, or at plastic failure. Accordingly, the use of elastic solutions to the problems of foundation...

Extreme Wave-Force Calculation Procedure for 20th Edition of API RP-2A
The paper describes the revised guideline design wave force calculation procedure approved for the 20th edition of the API-RP2A WSD and the first edition of the API-RP2A LRFD and contrasts...

A Simple Model to Predict Soil Resistance to Driving for Long Piles in Deepwater Normally Consolidated Clays
As the exploration and development for offshore oil and gas reserves moves into the deepwater environment of the continental slope, a good model is necessary to evaluate drivability of...

Axial Capacity of Steel Pipe Piles in Clay
Development of theories for the prediction of the axial compressive and tensile load capacities of driven piles is made difficult by a variety of factors, e.g., disturbance of the soil...

Offshore Technology in Civil Engineering
Hall of Fame Papers from the Early Years
Prepared by the Program Committee of the Offshore Technology Conference of the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute of ASCE. This series presents...

Application of Model Pile Tests to Axial Pile Design
Experiments conducted with instrumented model pile segment probes at Harvey and Empire, Louisiana are summarized and the observed behavior interpreted. Correlations are developed for the...

Case Study of Offshore Pile System Reliability
This paper presents the results of research effort to evaluate the reliability of offshore pile foundation systems. It is an extension of previous work by the authors [14] dealing with...

Reliability and Resilience — Essential Ingredients of Sustainable Geotechnics
Sustainability of a system is its ability to survive and retain its functionality over time. In very simple terms, sustainability deals with the capacities (resistances) and demands (loads)...

Asset Management of Earth Retaining Structures: Design through Design Life
Regarding new earth retaining structures (ERS) construction, the message is clear: plan for asset management. New construction is certainly not immune to performance issues, and the time...
