The Austrian standard ONR 24810, 2020 regulates the effects of actions, design, construction, monitoring and maintenance of rockfall protection embankments. This standard describes the design concept and the constructions in detail. The basic principles are based on the research results of Hofmann & Mölk, 2012, Hofmann et al., 2013, Hofmann et al., 2017 and Hofmann et al., 2020. The constructions are differentiated into five types depending on the front facing and the geosynthetic reinforcement (Table 2). Type I refers to embankments without geosynthetics. Embankments with a stone facing on the uphill side are type II. The constructions reinforced with geosynthetics represent the construction types III, IVa and IV b. The geosynthetic-reinforced embankments without increased transverse distribution of the impact loads is type III, the geosynthetic- reinforced embankments with increased transverse distribution is type IVa and with strongly increased transverse distribution is type IVb. This design concept is used e.g. in Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Italy and Norway.
Keywords: Rockfall, embankments, Geotechnical verification, innovative constructions.
