Module 4.A – Gabion Basket and Gabion Mattress Installation Guide and Product Applications (1.0 PDH Credit) by G. Ragazzo
The Gabion system is known world-wide as an ancient and the most effective hard armor solution in the practice of soil erosion control, flood control, earth retention and soil stabilization. Interconnected and rock-filled containers called Gabions are engineered to construct a variety of structures which posses the unique combination of flexibility, permeability, strength and integrity. Historically, Gabion structures have been known to be labor-intensive to install and sometimes aesthetically unattractive.
This Training Module aims at illustrating and viewing the latest technology and innovations brought to the Gabion System in the last two decades, which dramatically reduce its labor-intensity, installation time, material requirement and thus cost, while noticeably improving its structural integrity and its aesthetical value.
At the end of the training module participants have learned: 1) How the continuous Gabion Construction method utilizing “Master Rolls” or “Roll-Stock” material results into quicker Gabion installation, more economical and more structurally sound Gabion structures, with less material, 2) How to design and construct MSE (Gabion-Faced wire mesh reinforced soil) walls. Gabion facing element and wire mesh soil reinforcement are integral, 3) Gravity walls and Channels design, 4) Gabion assembly and construction methods, 5) Shoreline protection techniques, and 6) Underwater gabion placement.
