Rockfall protection embankments

Rockfall protection embankments

99.00 esc. IVA

The rockfall embankment works are constituted by an earth structure with a trapezoidal geometry, often combined with the presence of a rocktrap coated by a low elastic restitution coefficient material (eg. sand). For the sizing of the work are carried out the usual assessments provided for works of loose materials, ie the calculation of the bearing capacity of the foundatoin ground, the settlements of the foundation ground and the stability calculation  of the two sides upstream and downstream.

OVERTURNING VERIFICATION SPREAD FOOTINGS

The computation is based on the calculation of the rigid body equilibrium (EQU) of the infinitely rigid foundation (both flexurally and extensionally) compared to the rotation around the sides (edges) of the base polygon on the lean concrete.

It is therefore to check if, with respect to each side of the polygon, the ratio between the stabilizing moment and the overturning moment Mstab/Mdestab is higher than the partial safety factor ϒR = 1.15 (Eurocode). It is ultimately to make an equilibrium to the rotation around each of the sides considering them as a linear fix hinge designing all the moments (overturning and stabilizing) in the vertical orthogonal plane to the individual base sides excluding any of the ground reaction force (that in a limit state of rigid rotation in fact is free from contact with the spread footing).

Embankment settlement

99.00 esc. IVA

Embankment settlement: The prediction of embankment settlement is a critically important issue for the serviceability of subgrade projects, especially the post-construction settlement. A number of methods have been proposed to predict embankment settlement; however, all of these methods are based on a parameter, i.e. the initial time point. The difference of the initial time point determined by different designers can definitely induce errors in prediction of embankment settlement. This paper proposed a concept named “potential settlement” and a simplified method based on the in situ data. The key parameter “b” in the proposed method was verified using theoretical method and field data. Finally, an example was used to demonstrate the advantages of the proposed method by comparing with other methods and the observation data.
