Abstract

Protection against rockfalls occurring alongside landslides contribute to the major part of the disaster management budget in many counties like Switzerland, Japan and Hongkong. Protective structures are usually built over disaster trajectories to safeguard lives and properties. Reinforced concrete barriers that are fitted with gabions are one common form of installations to provide the protection. Few experimental investigations involving impact testings of a rigid reinforced concrete barrier which was fitted with a gabion cushion cover have been reported in the literature. But these investigations were limited to studying the localised actions of impact. The change of structural response b..
