Understanding natural hazards through Rock & Roll

28 August 2019

Further tests are carried out in nature.  We have installed our test barrier at the Flüela pass.  A giant "Super Puma" helicopter flies stones, weighing up to 2.7 tons to the drop point of the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research (SLF).

The effort is great, but so is the benefit.  The SLF will thus further refine its rockfall simulation models.  We at Geobrugg, want to make our barriers even more adaptable to natural conditions and further expand our technological leadership in natural hazard protection.  At the GEO Summit conference organized by Geobrugg, we convinced more than 200 experts from over 40 countries.
