GEOIZOL Group of Companies
Safety assurance is important when designing and constructing any facility. One of the aspects of high level safety assurance is prevention of dangerous geological processes such as landslides, rockfalls, avalanches.
In hilly and mountainous locations, it is difficult to control geohazards. Rockfalls, landslides, mudslides or avalanches are sporadic and unpredictable phenomena. It is frequently not possible to guarantee the security of people and structures using scientific methods. Reconnaissance surveying of the territory is required to identify all geohazards, followed by continuous monitoring, detailed calculation of the required parameters and the necessary engineering calculations, with the subsequent professional installation of protective structures. An integrated approach to resolving the task will be most effective and reduce loss to a minimum.
Rosengineering performs complex of works in the field of nature hazard protection (concept development, design, construction and installation works). Our products and solution aim to prevent on-site rockfall and talus, strengthen slope massif, protect against erosion and restore vegetation layer.
Landslide occurs when either natural processes or people breach slope stability. The entire mass moves and disaster may occur. Mostly caused by water underwashing, weakening of formation endurance during ventilation, falls and groundwater overwetting, seismic impact influence.
Methods of landslide protection:
Soil erosion is a diverse process of destruction and removal of soil by water and wind flows. Soil losses are not compensated by natural soil-forming processes, and the soil partially or completely loses its fertility.
The main factors that causes soil erosion are:
Methods of soil erosion control:
Preventive measures and soil erosion control
Strengthening of slopes through engineering measures
Water discharge arrangement
Rockfall prevention means building special constructions aimed at preventing the fall or sliding of large rocks
Methods of Rockfall prevention:
Avalanche pose a serious danger to ski resorts, could be hazardous for people and infrastructure.
Avalanche prevention measures:
Avalanche protection measures:
Mudflow is a turbulent earthflow consisting of water and rock fragments, which may suddenly emerge in the basins of small mountains rivers
Anti-mudflow works can be devided into two groups:
