The stress variations in the soil and the soil nail pullout behaviour at different test steps and conditions are compared with the experimental data and discussed.

Soil nailing : best practice guidance

This was completed as follows: For each pullout testing, the relationship of pullout force, effective earth pressure at six locations Figure 4. Remember me on this computer. Three of the seven walls were built in sand, three in layered sand and clay or silt clay, and one in a stiff heavily over consolidated clay as shown in Figure 2. Soil nail pullout tests can be carried out under controlled condition using the pullout box, and thus the influences of some important parameters of soil nail pullout resistance can be studied.

Although the design guidelines are available in many countries, some design issues remain ambiguous among some engineers and researchers.

In their analysis, the structural elements were embedded in the soil mass, and the interaction between the nail and the surrounding soil can not be defined.

The advantages of the application of soil nailing in respect of construction, cost and performance mainly include: Your Cigia browser is not enabled for JavaScript. The soil plasticity index Ip is Create lists, bibliographies and reviews: The local analysis of each soil nail Figure 3.

The critical shear displacement uc was assumed to be 1mm. The soil nail ultimate pullout resistance is a key parameter for cjria design of soil nails. It was finally assigned as 0. Based on a detailed review of published literature, consultation with industry experts and practitioners, case studies, and existing codes and standards, the book sets out best practice for soil nailing.

During the soil nail pullout, the variations of the pullout force, pullout displacement, vertical earth pressures at six locations, pore water pressures at four locations and the strains in the soil nail, were automatically monitored and recorded. The steel bar is placed in pre-drilled hole mm in diameter with a vertical and horizontal spacing, typically varying from 1 to 3m, depending on the type of in-situ soil.

Introduction advantages of simplicity, speed construction, and economical efficiency, soil nailing has been increasingly used and become the most common slope stabilization method in Cieia Kong. Thus the effect of dilation in the saturated soil should be much smaller than that in the tests carried out in an unsaturated condition. Again there may be more recent versions of the document.

The model mesh, simulation procedures, material constitutive models and parameters are presented and discussed. Yeo and Leung compared and evaluated these design methods.

Register now while it’s still free! The influencing factors of the soil nail pullout resistance are then discussed. The density of the cement grout was 1.


This soil is the same soil used in previous studies by SuSu et al. The model simulates all the procedures of the pullout tests for the conditions of both unsaturated soil, without pressure grouting and saturated, with pressure grouting.

The pullout test data are further analyzed, compared and interpreted in Chapter 6. In California, the leading state in the use of soil nailing in high construction, more than ,m2 of soil nailed walls have been built there to date.

Apart from permanent works, soil nails may be used in temporary excavations. Chu performed a series of interface shear tests between a CDG soil and cement grout to investigate the shearing behaviour at the soil-grout interface.

It was observed that this phenomenon was not so distinct when the grouting pressure was low. In addition to the three research walls load tested to failure at the main facility, the Clouterre program also instrumented and monitored six other nailed walls constructed in various parts of France.

The main differences of these methods are the assumed failure surface, as shown in Table 2.

Sometimes for the same test, the measured earth pressures vary, even though the earth pressure cells were originally placed at the same distance away from the soil nail surface. Download Now White Paper: Experimental and theoretical study on pullout resistance of grouted soil nails.
