Rock Bolting and Grouting
Rock bolts are used to tie unstable or potentially unstable rock structures
into the slope. There are static and tensioned rock bolts:
- Tensioned rock bolts should be used only where a force is needed to counteract the forces making the
- In most cases static bolts should be used.
behind a static bolt is that if the structure is safe enough to drill into and
install rock bolts, it already has an inherent factor of safety. If the stability of
the structure is adversely affected in the future the static bolt will
automatically go into tension with the exact amount of force and in the exact
location that it should.
