Avalanche prevention structures also for rockfall

Avalanche prevention structures also for rockfall

18 March 2014

Avalanche prevention structures are not only loaded by the accumulated snow pressure but can also be susceptible to rockfall, especially the highest rows that are commonly installed underneath rock faces with considerable impact hazard. In order to keep maintenance low, a flexible snow net system was developed and tested, which can absorb up to 500 kJ of impact energy.
