GEOHAZARD - FOLLOW US
In complex situations that involve potentially dangerous conditions, there is no such thing as a standard solution. That is why we analyze every hazardous situation before we develop, working together with you, customized or entirely new solutions. Our competence and involvement is based on the highly specialized expertise we have accumulated from more than 65 years of processing steel wire.
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.
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.
We provide two avenues of consulting support for customers, planners, and building contractors:
1. Expert consultation on evaluation and design
2. Requirements analysis, surveying, anchor testing, installation, and acceptance. Whether your application involves a specific type of hazard (natural or otherwise), requires specialized solutions and/or customized structures, or if you would like project-specific trials or testing assistance, we are happy to assist.
Learn even more about our systems and their dimensioning capabilities in our workshops, webinars and product training sessions which take place regularly in a range of locations around the world.
