Abstract
Due to the fact that the German Railroad reduced the maintenance work on the important railway line Nuremberg – Regensburg, section Deining - Batzhausen they had several cases with blocks laying at the tracks. Therefore they decided to stabilize the 70° steep weathering prone sandstone slope. As a protective measure the flexible slope stabilization system using high-tensile steel wire meshes was selected in combination with nailing. This widely used way to stabilize soil and rock slopes is economical and a good alternative to shotecrete solutions or massive supporting structures. Special concepts have been developed for dimensioning of flexible surface stabilization systems in steeper soil or heavily weathered loosened rock slopes, but also on jointed and layered rock in which the bodies liable to break out are determined by joint and layer planes. Stabilizations implemented in soil and rock slopes confirm that these measures are suitable for practical applications. Analyzing of the design, explanation of the installation and how the finished installation behaves will be shown.
