Ground Anchors

Ground anchoring is a common name applied to an engineered system that mechanically fixes a structure to the ground, enabling load transfer into a competent stratum.  The tensile forces applied are resisted by the shear strength of the surrounding ground.

Ground Anchors have become an essential component in modern construction techniques and are commonly used in retaining wall tie-backs; resistance to structure overturning; resisting landscape sliding; preloading of ground to minimize structural settlement; pile and plate loading tests; and resistance to structure buoyancy.
