ACBM, Concrete Block Mattresses


The Articulated Concrete Block Mattresses (ACBMs) consists of a mattress of individual concrete blocks which are secured together with cables. The cables enable the unit to be simply lifted and deployed into position. The ACBM's are used to place over the pipes to add ballast, increasing the mass of the pipe system, and limiting movement. Depending on the expected current forces, the ballast can be continuous or at intervals along the pipe.
