A GUIDE TO THE USE OF ROCK REINFORCEMENT IN UNDERGROUND EXCAVATIONS

After describing the mechanics of failure of underground excavations, the report outlines the concepts of rock reinforcement. Design considerations are discussed in detail. The three most common types of reinforcement (dowels, bolts and anchors) are each fully described, with the basic factors to be considered for corrosion protection. Selected case studies appear in an appendix. The report covers most aspects including site investigation, design, selection, installation and monitoring of rock reinforcement, but it excludes contractual matters, planning and costs. (TRRL)
