Jack ups provide a stable working platform by placing legs on the seabed and elevating vessel out of the water. Jack-up footings often penetrate a significant distance into the seabed and are one of the few cases where the objective is to fail the soil as part of the engineering process.
The penetration of jackup legs into the seabed is dependent upon the nature and strength of the seabed soils, however, we cannot choose the soils present on site and seabed soils are often inherently variable. Therefore a detailed understanding of the soils, potential variability and the penetration mechanisms is essential for the safe operation of jackups.
