ANALYSING, DESIGN PROCEDURES & DESIGN EXAMPLES
With introducing a new green structural system for reinforced walls.
ARMORMAX® is an Engineered Earth Armouring Solution used for surficial slope stability as well as permanent erosion control in vegetated and un-vegetated applications. With a verified carbon footprint up to thirty times less than rock riprap or concrete, ARMORMAX® 75 is an environmentally friendly and cost effective alternative to traditional, “hard” armouring solutions used for stabilising the face of steep slopes and flood protection levees. It is designed to optimise rapid vegetation growth (where needed) and keep the soil in place, thereby resisting mobilisation of soil masses associated with sliding failures of slopes. This system may be used to mitigate against shallow failures and thereby restricting larger rotational failures, and will be designed to meet project’s hydraulic, geotechnical, design life, environmental and economic needs.
Part 2 of this webinar series will focus on design software, design procedure and examples, while also introducing a new green structural system for reinforced walls.
WHEN: WEDNESDAY 2 DECEMBER 2020
TIME: 1PM AUCKLAND
DURATION: 1 hr
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Civil and Geotechnical Engineers that commonly use traditional hard engineering methods to stabilise surficial slope stability and flood protection levees will benefit from this presentation.
