OTO 016/2001

Pile/Sleeve connections

Gives technical information on the design, materials, and construction of grouted connections between the supporting piles of offshore structures and jacket legs/pile sleeves. Is based on guidance previously contained in section 22 of the Fourth Edition of the Health and Safety Executive's "Offshore installations: guidance on design, construction and certification" which was withdrawn in 1998. The withdrawal of the "Guidance" was not a reflection on the soundness (or otherwise) of the technical information it contained; some sections (or part of sections) of the "Guidance" are currently referred to by the offshore industry. For this reason, after consultation with industry, relevant sections are now published as separate documents in the HSE Offshore technology (OT) report series. Whilst the text has been reformatted for offshore technology publication, the technical content has not been updated.

Some of these research reports are very large, for information about expected download times please see our FAQs pages.
