...1. Introduction Understanding the processes associated with dy- namic penetration of rigid bodies from water into soft soil is challenging. This is principally because of: (a) an ill-defined transition from water to soil and selection of appropriate material re- sponses in this zone; (b) an extreme...

In relation with geological fea- tures, such as pockmarks, gas hydrates, carbonates or mass flow deposits, penetration of suction piles might prove impossible. In this case, driven anchor piles may become...
