The formula in Eq. The soil in the box was then removed. Write a review Rate this item: Home About Help Search. The limit equilibrium and shear strength reduction methods are two well established methods for slope stability analysis.

This is because the distances between the earth pressure cells and the soil nail surfaces changed with the soil settlement and soil particle re-arrangement during and after the test phases of soil compaction, overburden pressure application, and hole drilling.

This is accomplished by installing closely spaced, passive, structural inclusions, known as nails, into the soils to increase their overall shear strength.

Lim and Briaud and Lim chose one-dimensional structural elements, such as beam and cable elements, to simulate the inclusions. In the following section, the effects of overburden pressure and grouting pressure on soil nail pullout resistance are discussed.

This chapter presents briefly the background, the objectives and specific issues to be investigated, and the organization of the thesis. It is also seen in the figure that cG’ for the peak pullout resistance increases with the grouting pressure as pG increases from zero to 80 kPa, and then approaches a constant as pG is higher than 80 kPa. The higher the applied grouting pressure, the denser the soil around the soil nail. Consolidated and drained compression tests were carried out under three different confining pressures kPa, kPa, and kPa.


In Hong Kong, as indicated above, although the grouting pressure is not controlled during grouting, a certain level of grouting pressure may exist due to pumping and gravity.

The FBG sensors appear to provide higher reliability than the strain gauges for the small strain monitoring.

The distributions of the bending moments, shear forces, shear stresses along the soil nail, and pullout force vs. The soil nail pullout behaviour is assessed by comparing the soil nail performance under different overburden pressures and grouting pressures, respectively. After drilling, a high yield ribbed steel bar was placed in the middle of the drill hole.

When water flows into the voids in the soil, the soil particles surrounding the soil nail move and re-arrange, and the arching around the soil ciia is relaxed. As suggested by Luo et al. Lubricating oil was spread between the film and the box surface.

It was noted that the sensitivity of the earth pressure cells in the soil can be lower than that in the fluid calibration due to an arching effect or non-uniform contact condition in the soil. Don’t have an account? A brief description of the three types of soil nails is given below.

For example, the effective stress method, adopted in Hong Kong, does not account for factors including soil arching, soil dilatancy, soil saturation condition, roughness of drillhole surface, and grouting pressure.

Since this present model divides the normal stresses around the soil nail into three parts: It is seen that the increased pressures are maintained for about 8 mins and then decrease gradually to stable values.

The steel properties should be perfectly ductile rather than brittle Myles,to avoid a brittle failure. The potential failure modes can be broadly classified into external failure modes and internal failure modes GEO Test Setup, Materials and Procedures have been summarized and presented.


Failure modes of a soil cjria system The failure surface of a soil nailed system may or may not intersect the nails. It can be seen that, although the applied grouting pressure of kPa in the grouting barrel was kept for 30 mins, the increased pressure at P-Cells 1, 2, 3 and 4 is only maintained for about 10 mins and then decrease, with time, to stable values.

Three nails were strain gauged and monitored for 1. The locations of the measured strains are shown in Figure 4. The increased normal stress, due to the constrained soil dilation, can reach four times the initial stress Clouterreas shown in Figure 2.

Although the degree of saturation in the box, measured during the soil removal, is not the real ciriq 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 factors of soil dilation, overburden pressure and grouting pressure are considered in the FE model. Search WorldCat Find items in libraries near you. As discussed in Chapter 5, the normal stresses around the soil nail were observed to increase, to an extent, during saturation. Sealed O-ring is also used at the front cover, as shown in Figure 4.

Good agreements are found in the comparisons. I would like to consult the book mentioned in the topic title with the following additional data: The waterproof triaxial cell has x637 functions: The manual details over 50 projects undertaken in the USA between and The load cell was calibrated using a dead weight.
