Abstract

Copyright © 2015 by the International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE). This paper reports the results from centrifuge model tests undertaken to provide insight into the behavior of a bucket foundation subjected to undrained and drained lateral loadings. The imposed lateral load induced significant overturning moment, simulating the loading conditions of a typical offshore wind turbine foundation. The different loading drainage conditions were simulated controlling the loading rate. In the plastic region, the load bearing resistance in the undrained condition becomes much larger than that in drained condition. Significant negative excess pore water pressure was induced under undrained loading inside the bucket model, providing the additional load-bearing resistance.
