This paper presents the findings of an international jack-up leg penetration prediction event, organized by the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) Technical Committee for Offshore Geotechnics (TC209). Professionals within the offshore geotechnical industry were invited to predict leg penetration behavior for four different soil conditions based on geotechnical information available, spudcan / footing dimensions and preloads. Evaluation of the predictions and comparison with actual measured leg penetrations provided insight in industry practice with regard to selection of calculation methods, soil parameter values and the range of predictions that can be expected for various soil conditions.
