We don’t talk about engineering as it relates to the Silva Cell much here, mostly because I’m still mastering basic math and have little to bring to the conversation. But that aside, the Silva Cell is a highly engineered product, and since it’s used in urban environments, engineering is an important consideration on all of our projects.
To communicate that better, and to assure our partners and clients that we have the resources and data to take engineering concerns seriously, we’ve added an Engineering page to our website.
You’ll notice that the page mostly contains information about vehicle loading. That’s because this is one of the most common questions we encounter, but of course it’s not the only one. Other popular questions have to do with:
- Curb setbacks
- Lateral loading
- Dynamic loading
- Geogrids & geotextiles
- Drainage & water issues
- Repairs & maintenance
We’ve got answers for all of these, too, but this information is available by request only. We don’t like to generalize about factors that can vary so much from project to project. Besides, we like to talk to (really!).
