Soil & Rock Anchors

By October 24, 2014 No Comments
Soil and rock anchors are typically pre-stressed bar or multi-strand tendons that carry vertical and lateral earth pressures and uplift forces. Temporary tieback anchors are frequently installed with conventional excavation support systems. Permanent tiebacks are used extensively with marine bulkheads. Permanent tieback or vertical tiedown anchors are also used to increase dam stability to meet seismic codes. In aggressive soils, permanent rock and soil anchors may be double corrosion protected for long service life.
