Design and construction guidelines for a soil nail wall system
New York State Department of Transportation
“The Designer shall consult with the Regional Geotechnical Engineer (RGE) as early as possible in the design phase to ensure adequate subsurface explorations are progressed to verify the feasibility of installing the soil nail wall system. Subsurface explorations must also provide enough information to define the engineering characteristics of the soil for design purposes. When considering the use of a soil nail wall system, it is recommended that the Designer contact the RGE for the determination of the appropriate subsurface exploration locations and subsequent analysis of the soil for its suitability for soil nailing…”.
Soil Nailing for stabilization of steep slopes
Dr. Amit Prashant et al.
“Soil nailing is a technique in which soil slopes, excavations or retaining walls are passively reinforced by the insertion of relatively slender elements – normally steel reinforcing bars. Such structural element which provides load transfer to the ground in excavation reinforcement application is called nail…”.
