Design of Rockfall & slope protection measures using MacRO & Mac S-Design software
Developed in cooperation with specialist contractors to ensure safety and buildability, our portfolio of rockfall protections and natural hazard mitigation systems is certified and tested by leading institutes in accordance with the latest standards using state of-the-art modelling software and techniques.
Rockfall protection and snow avalanche mitigation systems are key elements in the security and safety of infrastructure, mine works, buildings or people. Even small rockfalls, or debris flows can block infrastructure and can have far-reaching economic effects beyond the immediate disruption.
Whenever possible, full-scale testing is carried out at our test facilities in order to model the real-world situations and load conditions as accurately as possible. The combination of the performance data determined from these tests, has been included within our design software Mac S-Design and MacRo suite.
Mac S-Design software is used to determine suitable facing systems for pinned drapery solutions. The user is able to select from the different Maccaferri meshes, the one most suited to his specific needs.
Mac S-Design features:
– Based on a hybrid design method;
– Partial safety factor approach;
– Assessment of the Factor of Safety before the intervention of stabilization;
– Detailed verification of the selected mesh facing solution;
– Calculates the loads applied to the anchors from the facing stabilisation system.
