Abstract

A caisson is a closed-top steel tube, which is first lowered to the seafloor allowing to penetrate under its own weight, and then push to full depth with suction force producing by pumping water out of its interior. Recently, caissons have been widely used for different types of constructions, such as gravity platform jackets, jack-ups, offshore wind turbines, subsea systems and seabed protection structures. For an optimum design, a better understanding of the performance of caisson foundations is therefore necessary.
