Techniques Anchors Micropiles

Anchor block slope stabilization remediates slopes or existing retaining walls, using anchored reaction blocks. Keller designs and constructs this technique as a solution to slope instabilities.

Common Uses

  • Provide slope stabilization
  • Stabilize existing retaining walls

Technical Details

The block layout pattern is typically in rows across the slope or retaining wall. Initially, anchors are installed at the planned centre of each block location. Reaction blocks are either precast or cast-in-place around the anchor heads. Bearing plates are then installed and the anchors are tensioned against the blocks. The finished anchored reaction blocks resist the movement of the retained soil or wall.
