Combination bolts are effective for immediate work protection at the face after torque tensioning, and when later fully grouted, can be classified as permanent support. Workers are installing rock bolts in the face area while grouting of the bolts takes place at a convenient time and distance behind the face (typically about 50m).
ROCK BOLT AND SHOTCRETE AS A PERMANENT SUPPORT SYSTEM IN WEAK ROCK TUNNEL. In this paper, several engineering examples of using rock bolts and shotcrete layer as permanent support systems in weak rock tunnels are introduced.
Liming · installation. For short term applications the bolts are generally left ungrouted. For more permanent applications or in rock in which corrosive groundwater is present, the space between the bolt and the rock can be filled with cement or resin grout. Dowels or anchor bars generally consist of deformed steel bars which are grouted into the rock.

The CT-Bolt is a unique combination rock bolt system. It offers the combined advantages of an immediate point anchorage and subsequently a fully grouted rock bolt. A two-step installation procedure allows fast installation and immediate anchorage, separate and independent grouting provides flexibility in regard to working cycles.
Rock bolts were applied to civil tunnelling support in the US and in Australia, starting in the late 1940s. Rock bolts were used and further developed, starting in 1947, by Australian engineers who began experimenting with 4m-long expanding anchor rock bolts while working on the Snowy Mountains Scheme.
Liming · Rock bolts transfer the load from the unstable exterior to the confined (and much stronger) interior of the rock mass. Rock bolts work by ''knitting'' the rock mass together sufficiently before it can move enough to loosen and fail by unravelling (piece by piece). Rock bolts are commonly used in tunnels or rock …
The cartridge is designed for rapid insertion into a wide range of diameter and length boreholes. The system permits the placing of bolts in any position or angle above or below the horizon. Therefore, optimum bolt anchorage is possible in a wide range of concrete structures or rock strata by easily adjusting the length of the resin anchor zone.
Liming · In the context of slope stabilisation, rock bolting is adopted to provide specific localised mechanical reinforcement of geologically unstable formations such as overhangs and wedges. Following drilling of the hole into the rock formation, rock bolts may be fixed via mechanical expansion, or a grouting/epoxy process.

Liming · Mechanically anchored bolts are poor in these conditions. Lacing between heads of reinforcement helps to retain rock near surface under heavy rockbursting. Very poor rock associated with faults or shear zones. Rock-bolts or dowels cannot be anchored in this material. Fibre-reinforced shotcrete can be used for permanent support under low stress

Permanent anchors can be constructed from high tensile strand or bar. Bar anchors can either be galvanised or stainless steel depending upon the environment and engineers requirements. In some cases, fibreglass bolts are used. Check out a more detailed picture of a permanent strand anchor in our picture gallery. Rock bolts

Liming · Historically steel bolts form the most frequently specified material for permanent rock strata support. However, in corrosive or space constrained environments, glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) has been introduced as a viable alternative. GFRP is more frequently specified in soil nailing techniques or as temporary or passive support.

Rock bolt assemblies with extended-length coarse thread, for multiple re-tightening after installation with resin capsules. Assemblies comprise the stud, matching nut and bearing plate washer, in a variety of bolt diameters and lengths. Rock bolt assemblies are packaged as complete, ready-to install units.
Liming · In rock climbing, a bolt is a permanent anchor fixed into a hole drilled in the rock as a form of protection. Most bolts are either self-anchoring expansion bolts or fixed in place with liquid resin. While bolts are commonplace in rock and gym climbing there is no universal vocabulary to describe them. Generally, a bolt hanger or a fixed Lifespan · See also · References · External links
