  • About the Edition

    A rational method is presented to predict the penetration of free-falling objects into deep-sea sediments by combining proven empirical theories from the field of soil mechanics with known hydrodynamic phenomena. The impact velocity of the object and the shear strength profile and density of the sediment are assumed to be known. The penetration problem was solved through the use of a computer by equating the work done during penetration to the energy of the object falling through air and impacting onto a modeled deep-sea sediment. The objects were simple geometric shapes ranging in weight from 500 to more than 1,000 pounds. The impact velocities ranged from zero to twenty feet-per-second. The results are compared with full scale tests and recommendations are made to extend the method to a water-sediment interface. The method successfully predicts the penetration of objects into weak, saturated, sediments within the accuracy of the stateof- the-art techniques for measuring the sediment mechanical properties. The impact duration time was observed to be relatively constant and independent of object velocity, shape, and weight implying that it may be a unique property of the dynamic behavior of a sediment type.

How is the energy of the falling wave water used. Answer: Deep-sea sediments most likely contribute to continent growth by being scraped off in a subduction zone and left at the surface.

In these cases a free-falling penetrometer (FFP) can be employed to provide information on the strength of these sediments. Such tests can provide useful data, such as the total depth and time of penetration, and the deceleration characteristics of the falling penetrometer.

Potentially, these data can then be used to deduce strength Whereas the nutrients remineralized from organic matter falling into seafloor sediments are an important input to the deep ocean, the seafloor is not otherwise a major source of most nutrients.
