State of the gabion after 10 fillings

Gabions are an often-used tool in the fields of road construction, hydraulic engineering, and landscape architecture as embankments or walls to serve as slope stabilization, retaining walls, temporary flood walls or noise barriers. The optimization of gabions concerning the size of bulk material, bulk density, and material and shape of the surrounding wire can help optimize load distribution and life expectancy of the gabions.

The simulation was performed with FLAC3D version 7.00 coupled with PFC. PFC rigid blocks are used to simulate the fill.
