Roxburgh & Partners
National Engineering Laboratory
This report outlines the requirement for permanent rock anchors to stabilise Breakwater Devices, discusses and confirms Roxburgh & Partners' choice of 3610kN anchors and provides preliminary design calculations and estimated costs in support. The permanence and service life of the anchors are examined and found satisfactory. The report goes on to describe working methods, plant and labour requirements and programme, it comments on the use of anchors in weaker materials. Details of further information required for optimum design and recommendations with costs are given for a test anchor programme.
