Description / Abstract:

1 Scope

1.1 Procedures for testing and qualification of the structural integrity of steel anchors are described. These procedures are suitable for use with "conventional" anchors designed with flukes, shank, stock, and padeye that are normally found in floating drilling structure service (see Figure 1). Qualification should apply to one anchor of each design.

1.2 Additional anchor sizes and designs shall be considered for inclusion in future editions of this publication upon submitting data to API, 1220 L Street, NW, Washington, D.C. 20005.
