Integration & foundation
When the flood defence needs to be implemented on long stretches, intermediate support post-I-beams will be used. These parts are critical because they will resist most of the (water) stress which subsequently applied to the post-I-beam base. The methodology for fixing the post is crucial due to the multiplier effect of large loads applied in given situations.
Therefore anchorage of the fixation base plate or box must be sized following precise strength calculation.
Generally, the ground below flood barriers is not able to withstand the high stress lead through the barrier (metal works) to the ground through the post’s base, so a foundation with R-bars must be built to counter-balance the water pressure as, for example,, X-tons of water stress oblige to « pour » X-tons of concrete!
Each site will require a specific solution in terms of size of fixation base-plate-or box and size of foundation.
Foundation size will be determined by underground structure, depending on depth. However our long experience and collaborative efforts will assist in finding the right solution.
