Ground and Rock Anchors have vast engineering applications and could be used in many projects either within the new design phase or after construction to strengthen components Ground and Rock Anchors are important components of ground support soil improvements foundation underpinning wall support and endless other applications of rock and ground anchors of different types and use in important public and civil works in Italy and all over the world The acquired experience enables TENSACCIAI to MAIN FACTORS IN ANCHOR DESIGN 5 CALCULATION OF ANCHOR CAPACITY Calculation can be of geotechnical type of structural type24 7 2008 nbsp 0183 32 Typically fully bonded and partially bonded free lengths are only applicable in massive concrete structures dams diaphragm wall t panels etc PTI 6 8 says The free stressing length for rock anchors and soil anchors shall not be less than 4 5 m 15 ft for strand tendons and 3 0 m 10 ft for bar tendons The Rock Anchor Solution The rock anchor is a complex but efficient foundation solution It reduces the volume of concrete and steel tonnage by using rock as the principal foundation The rock anchor is highly cost efficient feasible and has proven to be very reliable in many projects This solution uses the rock masses as a WTG foundation closely jointed rocks and in soft rocks because of deformation and failure of the rock in contact with the wedge grips In such rocks the use of resin cartridge anchors described later in this chapter is recommended At the other end of the rockbolt from the anchor a fixed head or threaded end and nut system can be used In ei

Figure 1 Brief Details of Rock Anchor 2 DESIGN BASICS For designing 137 Ton capacity Rock Anchor Taking total stress losses to 15 the anchor is designed for 137 20 55 157 55 Tons The following are to be evaluated Number of 15 2mm dia strands Bond length of anchor 3 MATERIAL PROPERTIES 3 1 Anchor Basics Tieback Anchor An anchor is a tension support which limits movement from subsequent excavation by providing a pre loaded condition to the supported ground Tensile load is transmitted by a steel tendon made of individual strands or bars The tendon is bonded to competent rock or soil by cement grout Tiebacks Rock Anchors Use in Deep Excavations and Installation Methods DeepEX software can be used for the design of retaining walls supported by tiebacks or rock anchors This section examines the use of tiebacks in deep excavation design as well as the ground anchor installation methods Figure Anchored Secant Pile Wall Designed with DeepEX The design of rock slopes and foundations 8 preliminary analysis which is intended to isolate critical slopes Only these critical slopes are considered in detail On the other hand the consequences of failure of a foundation are usually so serious that the preliminary design is carried out in much greater detail and the detailed geological dataRock anchors are composed of a single or multi strands of cables which have a bonded length that is fixed deeply in the rock mass and a free length that

The mechanical rock anchor should only be used in competent rock 2 The maximum working load for Williams largest mechanical anchor utilizing a 2 1 safety factor from the ultimate tensile steel capacity is 180 kips Grout Bonded Rock amp Soil Anchors Advantages 1 Grout bonded anchors can be used in virtually all rock conditions and also in The paper reviews some design rules and quality controls associated with prestressed cement grouted rock anchors Design data relating to uplift capacity rock grout bond grout tendon bond and tendon are appraised with special reference to the choice of safety factors For comparison the results of relevant theoretical and experimental widely used in anchor bolt design Since the required resistance factors vary among different failure modes the load factor will be given in Equation 1 5 so that the overall factor of safety remains 3 0 3 0 1 5 For example if the anchor bolt design is governed by concrete cone failure with 1 5 the load factor will be given by 3 0 The Rock Anchor is tightened along the anchor shaft to expand the resistance wedges into the rock Installed into solid unweathered rock and expanded to develop the full strength of the anchor rod Each anchor features a triple eye for up to 3 guy connections A hole size as listed below is drilled into the rock to a minimum of 12 in line Originally developed by engineers working on the Snowy Mountain Hydro Electric project in Australia for permanent corrosion protected rock anchors Hollow core steel guarantees an uninterrupted passage for grout from the surface to the distal end of the drill hole May be used for supplying or returning grout as orientation dictates
