After completing the site survey, Terre Armée in India proposed Reinforced Earth® walls wherever adequate space was available.
TerraLink™ wall was proposed at places where the toe of the hillock was too close and sufficient space was not available for laying soil reinforcement for a conventional Reinforced Earth® wall. In TerraLink™ Grouted TerraNail are drilled inside the existing slope and then connected mechanically to a Reinforced Earth® wall. Excavation of existing hill toe was not required to create space.
Out of 1,938 sq m, the TerraLink™ system was adopted for 878 sq m and 1,060 sq m was conventional Reinforced Earth® Wall.
TerraLink™ Wall height varied from 3m to 10m. It was designed for 24 KPa loading and designed as per BS 8006:1995, IS 1893:2002 & AFNOR NF P 94-220.
Terre Armée in India was responsible for design, sourcing of specialized materials and on-site technical assistance. The project was completed successfully within 10 months’ time.
