rock anchor methodology

1. 1. AF CONSULT INDIA PRIVATE LIMITED 10 MW, TIGA HYDRO-ELECTRIC PROJECT


METHOD STATEMENT FOR SLOPE STABILIZATION WORK FOR THE EXCAVATED
SLOPE IN POWER HOUSE AND EXISTING IRRIGATION CHANNEL BUND
2. 2. INTRODUCTION OF WORK The construction work of Tiga HEP is in progress. During the
execution, the following conditions have been encountered: 1. The aged irrigation Canal
Bund existing at site which is facilitating other Dam in nearby area, has been observed with
cracks which may further develop in future causing seepage/percolation of channel water
towards Power house. This may also cause loss of water supply to the aforesaid dam.
Despite of available slope protection measures viz. Boulder Pitching/cement pointing, it has
been proposed to provide additional protection for the existing structure for avoiding any
untoward situation. It is proposed to provide Soil Nails in a grid of 2mtr X 2mtr in a staggered
way in the affected area of 20m width X 10mtr height followed by Wiremesh and Shotcrete. 2.
The extremely poor geology with fractured formation of rock has been encountered which
have been weaker than expectation. To safeguard the slope against failure with the timeline,
It is proposed to provide special protection in terms of cement grouted rock anchors followed
by Reinforced Shotcrete (100X100X4 Wire mesh within 2 layers of Sprayed Concrete). This
treatment will work as stitching of weathered rock by anchors with a layer of concrete in the
face of rock surface. TECHNICAL PARAMETERS OF WORK S.N Description Unit Size

4. 4. Procedure: 1. Surface Preparation: The surface of the excavated slope will be cleared with
loose rocks to avoid chances for falling rock piece during course of execution. 2. Drilling of
Holes: Drilling of holes shall be carried out upon surface preparation. The depth of holes will
vary from 3m deep to 5mtr deep. The diameter of the holes shall be 40mm. The holes shall
be drilled at 10o downward inclined. Jack hammers or, drilling rigs shall be used for the work
based on suitability at field. Since the height of the area where treatment is to be provided is
almost 25m, so, suitable scaffolding shall be required to approach the rock anchor
installation place. 3. Insertion of Rock anchors: Upon successful completion of drilling, the
rock anchors shall immediately be inserted into the holes upto the desired depth. 4. 1st Layer
of Shotcrete/Gunnite: immediately after completion rock anchor installation in a patch of 25m
X 10m height, Shotcrete will be applied on the target surface of the slope. The Mix will be of
25mPa strength designed with 10mm down aggregate ingrediented with accelerator for fast
setting of concrete. The following will be approximate design mix adopted for the work:

AGG(KG) ADMIXUTE (KG) M30A10 450 220.5 910.4 364.07 7.65 5. Installation of Wire
Mesh: After initial setting time of Shotcrete/Gunnite, 100X100X4mm wiremesh, made of 4mm
MS wire shall be installed on 1st layer of Shotcrete/Gunnite. The
5. 5. wiremesh shall be supported by nails made of 6mm dia, 150mm long rod in L shape to
hold the wiremesh with the surface. The Face plate and Hex Nut shall be fixed with Rock
anchors keeping the Wiremesh in between Shotcrete and face plate. Joints in Wiremesh
shall be overlapped by 100mm. 6. 2nd /Final Layer of Shotcrete: Upon fixing of Wiremesh,
Faceplate & Nut, final layer of Shotcrete/Gunnite shall be carried out to cover the Wiremesh.
The work shall be carried out in phases of 5 mtr height, completing the each slope in 5 cycle
times. Key Equipments involved: 1. Jack Hammer or, alternatively Drilling Rig 2. Compressor
3. Gunniting Machine with Hose 4. Concrete Mixer 5. Other Small tools & tackles Execution
Schedule / Duration: The overall duration of the work shall be 50 days for complete execution
of the work as per the construction schedule below:
6. 6. Quantities involved: Installation of Soil Nail with Grouting : 400 RM Approx. Installation of
Rock Anchor with grouting : 1700 RM approx Fixing of Wiremesh : 1500 Sqm Application of
Shotcrete / Gunniting : 1500 Sqm THANK YOU
