Abstract

Soil nailing is an in-situ reinforcement technique which has been used during the last two decades to retain excavations or stabilize slopes. More recently, a kinematical limit analysis design method has been developed to provide an estimate of maximum tension and shear forces in the nails and assess the location of the potential internal failure surface. This method permits an evaluation of the local stability at each reinforcement level which can be more critical than global structural stability. This paper is focused on the evaluation of the available design methods (i.e., the French, Davis and kinematical design methods) through comparative analyses of design schemes established for typical soil nailed retaining structures.
