This project investigated the suitability of a novel design to simultaneously and independently spin and push a long tendon into a predrilled hole. The objective was to allow a tendon to be inserted whilst simultaneously bursting and mixing multiple resin sausages. This is considered an enabling technology for inclusion into an automated installation system for long tendons.
The technology employed in the prototype design was unfortunately deemed inappropriate and is not recommended for further development. This report summarises the work undertaken.
