PROFILE AND FRICTIONAL CAPACITY OF EMBEDDED ANCHOR CHAINS

Previously published techniques for determining the force distribution and geometric profile of an embedded anchor chain involve numerical solution by an incremental integration method. Closed-form expressions for load development and chain profile have been derived by rationalizing the problem. These expressions simplify the procedure for predicting the load and inclination of an embedded chain at some connection point in the soil. Extensive laboratory test results corroborate with the analytical work.
