Flexible debris flow barriers and their service ability proof

3 Mayo 2019

Flexible debris flow nets were developed within a three-year Ph.D. thesis by Wendeler in 2008. Since then, they have been used all over the world for debris flow protection or slope/riverbed stabilization. Some have already been filled a couple of times. Today, we present the first research on a serviceability method for scour and erosion issues on flexible debris flow nets. Design and calculation will be more economically and safely, maintenance costs will be minimized and a longer lifetime of the entire barrier system, including anchors as the most cost-intensive parts, can be provided. Impressions of the small field tests.
