|D O W N L O A D|
This is the latest revision of the Recommended Practice released by DNV GL class society and applying to the design and installation of the fluke anchors in clay intended for the catenary mooring systems. Note that the fundamental design and installation principles for the fluke anchors should be equally applicable to other soil types.
The guidebook opens with some introductory general information followed by the description of the main components of the fluke anchors and general behavior of this type of anchor. The following chapters of the document details the methodology used for the design of fluke anchors as well as recommended design procedure to be followed and requirements applicable to the soil investigation. The last chapter of the publication contains useful references.
There are several appendices to the main content of this Recommended Practice providing additional information on such important aspects of design and installation as analysis tool for the design, anchors in stiffer soil or layered clay, installation of the anchors and their testing, setup effect of their friction resistance, cyclic loading effect, and some others that shall all be duly considered.
