Paper Title:
Bearing Capacity of Suction Caisson Foundations Using FEM Analysis
  Abstract

To understand features of bearing capacity of suction caisson foundation is one of the key issues in design and construction of deep-water marine structures. In this paper, the general-purpose finite element analysis package ABAQUS is employed to conduct three-dimensional numerical analyses on load-carrying features of suction caisson foundation under vertically uplift load, horizontal load and moment. Then the ultimate bearing capacity of suction caisson foundation for undrained condition of the soil is evaluated by displacing-controlling procedure. Moreover, three-dimensional failure envelope of suction caisson foundation under combine loading condition are established by the proposed numerical procedure.
