Abstract

In the hilly and mountainous terrain, many types of structural methods are used to withstand high earth pressure and also prevent soil erosion and hold the earth surface intact. The generally used techniques include building retaining walls, soil nailing, reinforced earth retaining wall (RERW), etc. These types of construction methods not only consume a high quantity of steel and concrete but also increase labor and time of construction. This technical paper on “Blanket wall” for the ‘safe Protection’ of the cut & exposed/Natural surfaces of the hilly terrains will provide an alternative innovative method of construction which will reduce the cost of construction, save time and resources without compromising on the quality, safety and intent of construction. This particular article exemplifies one of the NMDC mining projects at Bailadila, Chhattisgarh. In the course of this study, a lot of innovative engineering ideas and thoughts have studied before arriving at the general layout and its technological requirements. The following factors are considered while planning and designing Blanket Wall: Space, constraints, type of terrain, soil conditions, area are subjected to heavy rainfall, thick fog considerations, transportation of heavy machinery & equipment, Time factors with respect to project schedule achieving the cost economy & various related aspects.
