Standards and regulations
Jetcrete is dimensioned in accordance with:
When testing the load-bearing capacity, the reinforced concrete slab is checked for bending (uniaxial or biaxial) and shear force in order to calculate the steel reinforcement to be inserted. In soil nailing, the punching shear forces are also investigated.
The soil nails can be applied for temporary (< 2 years) or permanent (> 2 years) use. When they are installed for permanent use, the steel supporting element is fitted with an anti-corrosion system consisting of a plastic ribbed tube injected with grout.
Further details are specified in our DIBt-issued general type approval issued:
Z-20.1-104 Stump-Franki soil nailing system.
