Abstract: This paper describes a series of centrifuge model tests investigating the vertical bearing capacity of flat and conical circular foundations on sand, which are representative of the spudcan foundations of offshore jack-up units. It is found that at shallow embedment the bearing capacity factor, N γ, mobilised by a conical footing is significantly lower - by a factor of up to 2 - than that for a flat footing. Plasticity solutions indicate that this discrepancy cannot be attributed to the theoretical differences in Nγ that arise from the roughness and geometry of the cone: these theoretical differences are minor (
