In a laboratory soil nail pullout test, key influencing factors on the fundamental interaction mechanism of the pullout resistance are able to be studied Chang and MilliganJunaideen et al. Privacy Terms and Conditions. This phenomenon actually reflects the collapse of the arching effect in the soil around the soil nail during saturation.

On the other hand, from the distribution of the bending moment, it can be observed that the effect of bending on the normal pressure along the soil nail length is within a limit range.

The effects of soil dilation, overburden pressure, and grouting pressure are considered in simulation.

The peak resistance is defined as the peak average shear stress at the soil-nail interface during pullout. Test Setup, Materials and Procedures a d e b f Extension bar Controlled air pressure Sealed cover of the grouting barrel Ingoing grouting pipe g c Pressure gauge measuring Pressure gauge measuring the grouting pressure the grouting pressure at the nail end Extension chamber at the nail head Figure 4.

Thus, soils adjacent to the soil nail take a larger share of the overburden pressure, so that the total earth pressures at P-Cells 1, 2, 3, and 4, to certain extent, increase.

The study also reports the use of semi-rigid inclusions by tunneling contactors into stabilize the slope around the tunnel portal. But cG’ may include the contributions of both bonding and frictional resistance at the interface between soil and grout.

Present model 20 mm Measured Pedley 20 mm One of the reasons is that the reinforcement in shear box fails in bending and shearing rather than tension. If we cut out of this soil nail an infinitely small unloaded element bounded by two verticals a distance dx apart Figure 3. Literature Review Most soil nailing works in Hong Kong are associated with the cciria of existing soil cut slopes and retaining walls.


Literature Review is a poor structural material because it is weak in tension. Milligan and Tei reported a series of pullout tests on both smooth and rough surface nails in standard yellow Leighton Buzzard Sands. The effect of grouting pressure is ckria taken into account in the soil nailing design. This was an 18m high temporary wall in Fontainebleau sand a dense, uniformly graded sand; in places, a cemented sandusing closely spaced short grouted nails 4m or 6m long, as shown in Figure 2.

The effective stress in the box can be calculated by subtracting the average pore pressure from the citia stress measured by earth pressure cells. Lim and Briaud and Lim chose one-dimensional structural elements, such as beam and cable elements, to ciroa the inclusions. As suggested above, the failure surface is likely to happen in the surrounding soil and not uniform around the nail. This is because the resistance to the grouting pressure transfer, increased with the hardening of the cement slurry in the pipe and the drillhole.

Test Setup, Materials and Procedures d a pressure grouting device is used to conduct grouting under a controlled pressure when constructing a soil nail in a drill hole in the box. It is well known that the peak strength is important for cciria analysis of geotechnical structures experiencing the initial failure failure at peak. Document Status Indicators The Green document status indicator indicates that the document is: Although the degree of saturation in the box, measured during the soil removal, is not the real degree of saturation in the box during pullout, these results can still be used as a reference to reflect the soil saturation condition during testing.

The relationship between the dry density and moisture content of the soil is shown in Figure 4. Please verify that you are not a robot. Soil crack generation may occur more than once, resulting in several sudden decrease-increase changes as shown in Figures 5. There are probably two reasons. Literature Review bending as compared with tension. The overburden pressure was then increased by 30kPa to maintain the effective overburden pressure consistent in the soil.

Jewell proposed that the average normal effective stress is in the range of 0. Research work on the behaviour and mechanisms of soil nails by means of field monitoring, laboratory testing and numerical modeling are reviewed. Before insertion of the steel bar, 4 f637 gauges and a series of FBG sensors were attached on the bar surface, as shown in Figure 4.

Close this window and log in. Based on soil Many factors that affect the pull-out Ciriq Stress mechanics principles; resistance are not accounted for Easy to apply. Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. Hence the magnitude of the normal pressure induced by the higher grouting pressure is related to the overburden pressure.

The research studies focused on the soil nailing performance in different soil conditions, loading conditions, ground water conditions, and nail arrangement conditions. It was observed that the lateral displacement increased in line with the increase in excavation depth. The pullout box is fully instrumented to monitor earth pressure variations in the soil, and strains, pullout displacement and force in the soil nail during the testing.

In Case Study 2, large-scale direct shear test by Pedley is analyzed in a progressive way by the new model. From the figure, it can be seen that both strain gauges and FBG sensors give similar strain results. It is noted that the soil properties have changed during the previous tests, hence basic property tests and triaxial tests for saturated soil has been carried out to determine the soil properties and shear strength.

I would like to express my thanks to Mr.

It is noted that if this plate was not used, after applying the overburden pressure on the soil surface, the rubber bag underneath the top cover would be d637 good contact with the soil surface in the central area, but not at the internal boundaries of the box wall. The analysis in Section 6.

This was estimated to have doubled tom2 by FHWA, Therefore, the relative punching displacement uy in Eq.

In the early s, the experience of design and construction of soil cifia was summarized by Watkins and Powellwhich soon became the standard practice in Hong Kong.
