The purpose of this handbook is to (1) identify and document the status of special types of anchors having the capability to resist uplift forces; (2) provide data on the properties and performance of these special anchors; (3) consolidate the data in order to facilitate anchor selection; and (4) establish a reference that can be readily updated to incorporate new data and new developments. Descriptions and data on anchors that are currently either shelf items or in an advanced stage of development are presented. Also, information on other less advanced designs and concepts is given. Sizes, weights, and operational characteristics of these special anchors, plus methods for estimating their penetration into seafloor sediments and their pull-out resistance, are provided. This handbook includes material and information that was possible to obtain within a specified time frame. The development of embedment anchors continues, and additional information will be incorporated as it becomes available.
