Design of offshore jacket mudmat

How to draw ultimate capacity envelope for shallow foundation (due to combined action of horizontal and vertical loads) using API-RP-2GEO.
for the purpose of offshore jacket structure mudmat design. Note: Drained and undrained soil

RE: Design of offshore jacket mudmat

More information needed, such as a sketch of what the foundation is (a simple strip footing?), information of the ground conditions (depths, strength profile etc) and loads....

RE: Design of offshore jacket mudmat

The first step is to calculate Vmax and Hmax. API has recommendations for these. After that the relevant V associated with a given H (or vice versa) is related using the inclination factors, ic/iq/iϒ, which use H/Hmax as an input.
