MASSBLOCK GEOGRID ANCHORING TESTING

29-May-2015

The team at Hudson Civil Products in Tasmania are leading manufacturers and suppliers of a wide range of civil products, including the “Massblock” concrete block retaining wall system.

An innovative connection system designed by Brierley Consulting Engineers allows Fortrac geogrid to be used as a tie-back to form a complete reinforced soil system.

Steel eyes were screwed into two M16 ferrules which were cast into the rear of each block. An N28 reinforcing bar was threaded through both steel eyes and Fortrac geogrid was looped around the bar. In practice the two tails of Fortrac are embedded in the wall fill, forming an intergrated reinforced wall.

A simple, elegant and effective innovation from two great Tasmanian companies.
