After complete site survey, Terre Armée India proposed a unique solution of TerraLink™ system along with Reinforced Earth® Wall to create an integrated innovative engineering solution to help client realise their project without any technical compromises and with economic advantage.
TerraLink™ Wall was proposed at top two layers of villas where the original ground profile of the hillock was too close and sufficient space was not available for laying of soil reinforcement for a conventional Reinforced Earth® Wall. In TerraLink™, grouted TerraNail® are drilled into the existing slope and then a layer of prefabricated galvanized steel mesh is connected using bearing plate avoiding local failures of the slope. The mesh is mechanically connected to Reinforced Earth® Wall with GeoStrap® as soil reinforcement at a distance varying from 0.5m to 1.0m.
For bottom pier of villas, retaining wall with Reinforced Earth® system with GeoStrap® as soil reinforcement was proposed as enough space was available to lay soil reinforcement as per design requirement. The height of wall varied from 5m to 13m.
Both TerraLink™ wall and Reinforced Earth® wall were designed for 60 KPa loading and designed as per BS 8006:1995, IS 1893:2002 & AFNOR NF P 94-220.
Terre Armée India was responsible for design, sourcing of specialized materials and on-site installation of system along with technical assistance at site. The project was completed successfully within 10 months time.
