...…achieved in these tests and those reported by Hossain et al. (2014) are significantly lower than the 1.5,2.1LA range reported by Medeiros (2002) and Brandão et al. (2006) for geometrically similar but lighter T-98 torpedo anchor in clay at the Campos basin (su ¼ 5 + 2z kPa), which reflects the…...
...…anchors have been used for anchoring deepwater flowlines and floating facilities at the Campos Basin, offshore Brazil in water depths up to 1400 m (de Araujo et al., 2004; Brandão et al., 2006; Wilde, 2009), achieving anchor tip embedment depths in the range 1.5,2.4 times the anchor length....
