RECENT APPLICATIONS OF PRESTRESSED ROCK & SOIL ANCHORS

The developing requirement to design economical foundation and retaining structures to allow the utilization of sites heretofore considered unacceptable, has forced engineers and owners to look for new and more efficient design and construction methods. In addition, a need to strengthen and refurbish existing facilities has forced the soils engineer to develop special techniques to allow the repair program to be conducted without disabling the structure's function. This paper presents, with illustrations, recent applications of prestressed rock and soil anchors to new foundation and retaining structures, as well as to existing structures.
