Only accurately dimensioned systems will provide reliable protection against natural hazards. That is why we utilize software that we have verified and calibrated through our 1:1 field tests. To dimension our systems we provide the following software - register to myGeobrugg for access. After registration go to the myGeobrugg portal.
RUVOLUM® dimensions our SPIDER® and TECCO® System slope stabilization systems. It determines which forces are stressing the net or mesh and anchor points in relation to geotechnical parameters. The software provides the static verification for the overall system.
SPIDER® onlinetool serves to dimension the SPIDER® rock protection system consisting of the high-tensile spiral rope net SPIDER®S3-130 with a strand diameter of 6.5 mm and a mesh width of 130 mm, system spike plates and adequate nailing. The software examines the stability of individual, critical rock blocks and determines the number and location of the required nails along the perimeter of the block.
DEBFLOW when it comes to dimensioning and aligning debris flow barriers, we rely on our project specific DEBFLOW dimensioning tool. DEBFLOW calculates standard barrier dimensions for granular or muddy flows and evaluates their retention volume. The software is based on experience and test results obtained from numerous of field and laboratory tests.
SHALLSLIDE dimensions flexible shallow landslide protection systems: high tensile steel wire nets, support and retaining ropes with a predetermined number of brake rings and flexible spiral rope anchors. The software is based on 1:1 tests and computer simulations. SHALLSLIDE analyses the stability and calculates the dynamic forces during the impact. It also verifies if the barriers can retain the total expected retention volume.
