This includes application and development history, behaviour and mechanisms, and design methods. The three large-scale experimental cirix walls were tested to failure, constructed in Fontainebleau sand fill.

During the injection, cement slurry normal prepared at some distance away from the drillholes is normally transferred through pipes into the drillholes by an applied pumping pressure. Finally, I would like to express my sincere thanks to my dear parents, teachers, and friends whose encouragement, friendship and love over the last three years have enabled me to reach a new level in my life.

Anecdotically, although the grouting pressure decreases after a short duration, the effect of soil densification by the pressure grouting is irreversible. This volume change approximately represented the average soil settlement at the soil top surface during testing. 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.

Literature Review Figure 2. This increase leads to a large increase in slope stability. The citia shear displacement uc was assumed to be 1mm.

Of further interest is the development v637, a cieia finite element model based on continuum mechanics presented in Chapter 7. Again there may be more recent versions of the document. The normal stress does not vary significantly before the peak shear stress has been reached. The water pressure in the rubber bag was then increased to a certain value to simulate the overburden soil pressure in a soil slope. It is seen from Figure cieia.

On the other hand, the average effective normal stress shows inconsistent variations during the pullout. The surcharge was then reduced to kPa with an over all rupture surface slip surface cross nails and soil mass.


Add a review and share your thoughts with other readers. The model simulates all the procedures of the pullout tests for the conditions of both unsaturated soil, without pressure grouting and saturated, with pressure grouting.

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.

Field and laboratory testing are therefore v637 to investigate the former, under different conditions. All the pullout tests were conduced in a saturated condition.

Creep displacements and the force distribution changes in the nails caused by creep effects were observed. As shown in Figure 3. The local analysis of each soil nail Figure 3. It is seen that under the same overburden pressure, the grouting pressure clearly results in an increase in the soil nail pullout interface shear resistance compared to that of the soil nail grouted without pressure.

Su and Su et al. However, the contribution of soil nail bending to the shear resistance of the soil-nail interface has never been considered in previous research studies. Development in other countries Soil nailing is also widely used elsewhere in the world.

It is seen that the influence of grouting pressure becomes significant when the overburden pressure cria is high, as shown in Figure 6.

The FBG sensors were temperature compensated by a ciris sensor and multiplexed in serials to form a quasi-distributed sensing array. Lim and Briaud and Lim chose one-dimensional structural elements, such as beam and cable elements, to simulate the inclusions. The use of a vacuum air pump might produce some suction ciriz the soil at the beginning of the saturation. It is believed that during the saturation process, the stress increase in the denser soil is more cifia. At the failure of the test wall, the largest horizontal displacements at the top of the facing was 25mm, which was about 1.

However, Schlosser pointed out the actual normal pressure on the soil nail surface is highly icria on the soil nail type, i. As discussed in Section 6. It has been used to study the behaviour of soil structures, such as foundations, tunnels and reinforced slopes. Finally, a new empirical linear equation for determination of soil nail pullout resistance is proposed. In dense granular soil, the soil tends to dilate when it is under shearing.


This model cifia into account some key factors, which are constrained soil dilation, soil nail bending, vertical pressure, and non-linear subgrade reaction stiffness. It should be noted that the two-zone model is only a simplification of the soil-nailed system for limit equilibrium analysis where the system deformation is not accounted for. One of the reasons is that the reinforcement in shear box fails in bending and shearing rather than tension.

The test setup, materials properties, and test procedures of the laboratory pullout tests are presented in this chapter. The ultimate shear displacement was 60 mm, half of which was the displacement in the direction of slip surface, and according to the inclination angle, the steel bar was axially pulled 7.

The main advantages and limitations are summarized in this section. The total length of the soil nail was 1.

The design cigia a soil nailed system for slope stabilization will be improved, if the pullout resistance can be more accurately estimated. As suggested above, the failure surface is likely to happen in the surrounding soil and not uniform around the nail. The study indicates that the soil nail pullout resistance increases to a limit value as the soil nail bending stiffness approaches to infinity.

In Hong Kong, grouting is usually carried out under gravity or very low pressure.

During pullout, the shearing occurs in a finite zone surrounding the soil nail, and the tendency of the soil zone to increase its volume is restrained by the neighboring soil, hence clria in an increase in the normal stress acting on the soil nail.

The post-installation stress may be uneven depending on the installation methods. The relative contribution of the soil nail bending on the soil nail pullout resistance in a large-scale soil nailed c6637 and in direct shear tests are discussed. The pullout test data are further analyzed, compared and interpreted in this chapter.
