Abstract

The American Petroleum Institute (API), through the sub-committee on offshore structures Sub-Committee 2 (SC2) and its Resource Group 7 (RG7) on geotechnical engineering, will soon publish a new recommended practice (RP) on geotechnical engineering, entitled RP 2GEO. This new RP covers both shallow foundations and pile foundations and is aligned to the greatest extent possible with the current ISO 19901-4 (for shallow foundations) and ISO 19902 (for pile foundations for fixed steel structures). This paper describes the key features of the new code and how its compares both with existing ISO guidance and with previous guidance in API RP 2A WSD 21st Ed. The philosophy behind the technical changes in RP 2GEO will also be explained. The authors of the papers are all members of RG7 and its ISO equivalent committee, Working Group 10 (TC7/SC7/WG10).
