English term or phrase:deadman wire
When moving the bucky back and forth by changing direction quickly, motion may stop and delay for several seconds before the deadman wire relay clicks.
In October, 1999, we held a riparian workshop at
Sheridan Creek which is a tributary of Island Park
Reservoir about 20 miles south of the Montana state
line in the NE corner of Idaho. For this workshop,
we had a backhoe available to complete some of the
bank shaping for the brush mattress and to install
deadman anchors to hold the Juniper revetments
against the bank. A deadman anchor is an 8-10
inch diameter log about 2 feet long that has a wire
cable wrapped around its middle. It is placed
parallel to the water in a hole dug about 2-4 feet into
the bank (depending upon the soil). The hole is
filled in while the wire is held out at a 45º angle. The
deadman wire can be used to replace the other
more expensive earth anchors. There are positive
and negative aspects to deadman anchors so each
situation needs to be examined individually.
