Wall Settings - Grouted Connection

grouted connection

Allan Block is designed with hollow cores to allow for placement of gravel to form a Rock-Lock connection with the geogrid. Under extreme loading or very high seismic conditions, a mechanical connection can be formed by grouting the cores solid, encapsulating the grid in the grout. Based on design, this is a very uncommon requirement.

  1. The Designer can choose to allow Editable Connection by toggling the button.

  2. On the sections screen click the Grouted Button. Click on the course that you want to grout.

  3. The graphic changes to show the grouted course.

Adding a grouted connection to a course changes the calculations for connection. The connection capacity will now use the LTADS of the grid as opposed to tested connection strength.
