ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1680/geot.2008.3781||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 (||Source Title:||Geotechnique||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/84499||ISSN:||00168505||DOI:||10.1680/geot.2008.3781|
