According to relevant experiments, the impact resistance coefficient of galvanized gabion wire mesh structure is more than twice that of ordinary anti-parabolic protection projects.
gabions - cage-like shells filled with inorganic materials such as stones, bricks or broken concrete. Their use in structural engineering is to protect shorelines, riverbanks and slopes from erosion, either in the form of "mattresses" laid at an angle or, more commonly, in gradual stacks like bricks.
One of the core reasons gabion walls have stood the test of time since they were used along the Nile thousands of years ago is that they are extremely flexible and durable. Under great stress, gabion baskets will deform, bend or very slightly compress rather than break. This is a functional feature that prevents loss of structural integrity and ultimately makes them stronger over time. In addition, not being anchored to the ground (like a normal wall) means that all the small ground movements that occur naturally will be allowed.
The nature of the way gabion baskets are made means that there are spaces between the stone fillings. This allows air and water to pass through, thus allowing the entire structure to breathe. Concrete structures, on the other hand, can generate hydrostatic pressure due to their impermeability, which can compromise their structural integrity.
One of the main advantages of gabion walls over traditional walls is that you don't need a traditional base - usually only a compacted fill layer like gravel is needed to keep the basket on its feet. You may think this means the base is not firmly planted in the ground, but this is not the case. As soon as you level the ground and prepare the wall for placement, the fill at the base of the basket sinks right into the ground, providing the frictional strength that keeps the basket in place and prevents the structure from being dragged away from a river or stream.
Once you have done some research and have what you need, you can assemble your own gabion wall in just one day. Simply secure the baskets together, prepare the ground they are on, and fill them with the filler of your choice. If you are building more than a meter high, or plan to build on top of a wall or basket, then you should consult a structural engineer, but for other uses, they can really do it themselves. If you don't like how it looks or how it actually works, you can take apart the baskets and move them around as many times as you like.
