The results of the two and three-dimensional, nonlinear analyses of a caisson retained island in the Beaufort Sea are presented. A hyperbolic stress-strain relation for soils has been implemented in a general purpose finite element program, ADINA, to carry out the analysis. Based on the comparisons of the results, conclusions were drawn about whether a two-dimensional analysis can be safely used to replace a three-dimensional analysis.
