Spinnanker - Bearing capacity of Spinanchors

Project: Research project

Description

Numerical simulations based on the Discrete Element Method and sensivity analysis about the mode of action of the spinanchor, constitutive of the available and new experimental knowledge. Although the load-displacement behaviour till large displacements, single rod anchors loaded with tension forces for basic studies, the vertical, horizontal and moment load of the anchor system and more variation like the anchor length, number of anchor rods, the reduced bearing capacity causes by the loss of anchor roods and the influence of the soil parameters are going to be checked.
