The influence of soil nail bending stiffness is shown in Figure 3. It was observed that the lateral displacement increased in line with the increase criia excavation depth. Juran and Elias showed that in a fined-grained cohesive soil, the low pressure grouting results in a rather smooth soil-grout interface.

In the French research project Plumelle et al. The soil used was quartz Leighton Buzzard sands. In the early s, the experience of design and construction of soil nails was summarized by Watkins and Powellwhich soon became the standard practice in Hong Kong.

The surcharge was then reduced to kPa with an over all rupture surface slip surface cross nails and soil mass. A general correlation may not be applicable to all sites Related to site-specific Need to carry out a considerable number performance ciriw of field pull-out tests during the design Pull-out Test stage; Not feasible for small-scale project; Time consuming Based on soil Generally not suitable for Hong Kong; Undrained Shear mechanics principles; Many factors that affect the pull-out Strength Easy to apply resistance are not accounted for.

Soil Nailing: C Best Practice Guidance by PHEAR, A –

The second reason is that the stress level will influence the constrained dilation of the soil. The privilege of working with Professor Yin has appreciably influenced my professional development and perspectives. As a result the hardening of the cement slurry is delayed in the grouting pipe and drillhole.

Appropriate constitutive model for the soil-nail interaction needs to be defined. The name field is required. Good agreements are found in the comparisons. Laboratory tests have been carried out to study the influences of overburden pressure and grouting pressure on the soil nail pullout resistance in a saturated CDG soil. Test Setup, Materials and Procedures resistance is, therefore, on the unsafe side. Are you an Engineering professional?


Although the degree of saturation in the box, measured during the soil removal, is not the real degree of saturation in the box during pullout, these results can still be used as a reference to reflect the soil saturation condition during testing. The design of a soil nailed system for slope stabilization will be improved, if the pullout resistance can be more accurately estimated.

It was finally assigned ciriz 0. The increment for each loading step was about 5kN. Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. Providing a guide for use of the technique for developers, infrastructure – and property-owners, designers, suppliers, contractors and maintenance managers, this book sets out practice for soil nailing. This chapter presents briefly the background, the objectives and specific cirua to be investigated, and the organization of the thesis.

It is assumed that the slope fails gradually along the potential slip surface. You may have already requested this item.

Red Flag This Post Please let us know here why this post is inappropriate. Instead of pre-drilling the hole and then grouting, the jet-grouting technique uses percussion driving with simultaneous high pressure grouting Louis The possibility of achieving an optimal design would be improved, if the pullout resistance could be more accurately predicted. The data measured by FBG sensors are used to compare and verify the strain gauge data.

The soil nail ultimate pullout resistance is a key parameter for the design of soil nails. Juran and Elias reported a cross-sectional view of an excavated nailed soil, illustrating grout permeation into an alluvial soil grouted under pressure of less than kPa. In the shear box apparatus, as the nail length is relatively too small to generate a large axial force, the nail bending makes a larger contribution to the shear resistance of the soil-nail interface.


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. Introduction advantages of simplicity, speed construction, and economical efficiency, soil nailing has been increasingly used and become the most common slope stabilization method in Hong Kong. In this chapter, the development of a rational simple mathematical model for the complex load transfer mechanism at the interface between soil nail and the surrounding soil is presented.

The effective overburden pressure should therefore be adjusted slowly until the stress equilibrium was re-established inside the box and the water pressure became uniform throughout the box. Suggestions are given for further research in the topic area. The length of the soil nail in the passive zone is observed from experimental results Figure 3.

Soil nailing – best practice guidance (C)

It partly originated from techniques developed for rock-bolting and multi-anchorage system, and partly from reinforced soil technique CIRIA It is believed that during the saturation process, the stress increase in the denser soil is more significant. They were calibrated in the same way as the earth pressure cells.

The review finds out the development and application history of soil nailing and research cria on the soil nail pullout resistance. Download Now White Paper: The applied pumping pressure depends on the field conditions, such as the distance and height between cement slurry and the drillholes. It is well known that the stresses, close to the perimeter of the drillhole, have dramatic variations.

The influences of modulus of soil subgrade reaction and soil nail c67 stiffness on the magnitude and distribution of the bending moments, shear forces, shear stresses along the soil nail, and the pullout resistances have been investigated.
