variety of methods including traditional factor of safety approaches, including BS (BSI, ) and (BSI, ), CIRIA C (Phear et al, ) . Publisher: CIRIA. Soil nailing is a technique where either natural ground or fill material is reinforced by the insertion of slender tension-carrying elements called . thread Hi, My dissertation is within the scope of nailing in soils. I would like to consult the book mentioned in the topic title with the.

The test lasted a total of 72 days. The FBG sensors were temperature compensated by a reference sensor and multiplexed in serials to form a quasi-distributed sensing array.

All the tests followed the procedures as described in BS This project excavated the toe of a ciri hillside to form a steep cut slope up to During grouting, pressurized cement slurry would unevenly penetrate the surrounding ciia, resulting in the uneven soil strength around the soil nail. The total length of the soil nail was 1. The interaction between the soil nail and surrounding soil is complex, and the forces developed in the soil nails are influenced by many factors, such as the soil nail properties i.

The test procedures simulated the real construction process of a soil nail, including the establishment of initial soil stress, drilling a hole with stress release, pressure grouting, soil saturation, and soil nail pullout. Close this window and log in. The overburden pressure was then adjusted and maintained to a certain value when the soil settlement became stable.

This distribution illustrates that the effect of advancing excavation is significant on row 7 but much less noticeable on row 3. You may have already requested this item. 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.


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. Anecdotically, although the grouting pressure decreases after a short duration, the effect of soil densification by the pressure grouting is irreversible. The use of the vacuum air pump and the increase of the applied overburden pressure may cause some soil settlement, especially for the soil in the upper box.

The main advantages and limitations are summarized in this section. The effects of soil dilation, overburden pressure, cciria grouting pressure are considered in simulation. A parametric cira was carried out to study the effects of the soil nail bending stiffness and the soil ciriw of the subgrade reaction on the soil nail pullout behaviour.

This model has been widely used in clria equilibrium analysis in soil nailing design, as shown in Figure 2.

It should be noted that some researchers argue that the direct shear tests could not represent the behaviour of the reinforcement in the slope Sawicki Please enter the message. The locus ciira maximum tensile forces of soil nails and the potential failure surface of a slope are also shown in the figure.

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University carried out large-scale laboratory pullout tests, and interface shear tests to study the pullout resistance of soil nails in Hong Kong Yin et al. As described in Chapter 4, the grouting pressure was applied c367 at 20 kPa for a few minutes until the hole was fully filled with cement slurry, and then gradually increased to a certain grouting pressure, i.

You already recently rated this item. This is because the normal stress is calculated from the measured earth pressure around the soil nail.

However, the changes of cria calculated normal stress seem to be diverging at large pullout displacement. This pressure up to kPa is to simulate the overburden pressure in a soil slope.


The shear modulus of the soil was assumed as 4 MPa by back analysis, considering the dimension effect of the reinforced steel bar. The different initial earth pressures at P-Cells 1, 2, 3, and 4 before grouting are also observed in other test data shown in Figure cigia. After the hole is full, the pumping pressure is released and the hole sealed.

In the following section, the research and current knowledge of how different factors influence the pullout resistance are reviewed. The material properties of the sample soil and cement grout are then presented, followed by the description of the test procedures.

The relationship citia the dry density and moisture content of the soil is shown in Figure 4. The distributions of the bending moments, shear forces, shear stresses along the soil nail, and pullout force vs. The predicted curves agree well with the reported data. It is seen from Figure 6. Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. Sometimes for the same test, the measured earth pressures vary, even though the earth c37 cells were originally placed at the same distance away from the x637 nail surface.

It seems that the displacements at the two peak values are different. It is seen the earth pressure at P-Cells 1, 2, 3, 4 increase significantly when the 80 kPa grouting pressure is applied, and then drop to stable values with time.

The diameter of the front, middle and end parts of the grout column and the attached soil were measured. Normally, the dilation behaviour is considered to be higher in a dense sand than in a loose sand.
