Abstract

Soil nailing consists of reinforcing the soil mass by the introduction of a series of thin elements called nails to resist tension, bending and shear forces. The reinforcing elements are made of steel round cross-section bars. Nails are installed sub-horizontally into the soil mass in a pre-bored hole, which is grouted. Figure 1 shows typical applications in slopes and excavations.
