Abstract

The seabed is disturbed by predominently horizontal cutting mechanisms during the installation of pipelines (e.g. by ploughs), by fishing gear components and by natural processes (e.g. iceberg scour). In each case the zone of soil disturbed by the device and/or the soil resistance force to the movement of the object is of interest to the geotechnical engineer. Consequently, this paper reports an experimental investigation of how different shaped objects penetrate the seabed. The results show that the penetration is influenced by both the front face angle and the weight of the object while the drag force is mostly influenced by the weight.
