Anchors generally consist of steel elements (bars or strands) grouted in a drilled hole. The bars are subsequently tensioned, this provides lateral or vertical force to resist movement of a retaining structure. Anchors are often used for excavation support, or as a part of permanent retaining walls, or to resist up-lift forces on foundations. Softec uses anchors to stabilize slopes and walls, provide tiebacks for bridges and stabilize dams.
The main applications of ground anchors are:
- Securing the slopes and rock projections.
- Anchoring of retaining wall and excavation faces.
- Anchoring of foundation slabs subjected to uplift forces.(Check our projects in Anchors)
