A study of soil nailing in sand

Abstract:

This dissertation is concerned with a study of soil nailing, in particular the interaction mechanism between the soil and a nail and the failure mechanism and suitable design procedure for nailed slopes in sand. The interaction mechanism of a nail was studied by carrying out a number of pull-out tests, direct shear tests of nailed sand and interface tests using two uniform sands. Major parameters of the tests were flexibility, surface roughness and diameter of a nail. From the tests, it was ...
