An overview of the types of structures used for rockfall protection constructed away from source. These includes ETAG27 certified dynamic fences, hybrid or attenuator fences and GTM reinforced soil bund.
Case studies in Christhchurch and Kaikoura. This talk will take you through an overview of rockfall protection problems and the general considerations when it comes to available solutions and approaches. Passive protection structures are very cost effective and technically feasible solutions especially when the problems are large scale and complex morphology in nature. The three main types of passive protection structures recommended in the NZ MBIE published guide. Project case studies in NZ especially around Christchurch and Kaikoura will also be showcased.
