    Hi everyone,

    I am searching for rules for designing spuds for anchoring, specifically in barges. I am looking for a configuration shown in the pic below. I am looking forward for any help that you could provide me, thanks in advance.

    I have never heard of any rules for designing onboard spud piles. Also, pile is not a Class item, but the inboard substructure.
    Rule-based design is not applicable here, and you have to apply First Principles.
