Title: An investigation of DTOcean foundation and anchor systems

Abstract

This memo documents the mechanical loading analysis performed on the second set of DTOcean program WP4 foundation and anchor systems submodule design iterations [4]. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) simulations were performed to validate design requirements defined by Python based analytic simulations of the WP4 program Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) tool. This FEA procedure focuses on worst case loading scenarios on shallow gravity foundation and pile anchor designs produced by WP4. These models include a steel casing and steel anchor with soft clay surrounding the steel components respectively.
