Report Title : Design of Soil Nails for Upgrading Loose Fill Slopes

Author : Geotechnical Engineering Office & Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (Geotechnical Division)

Abstract

Since the publication of the report on “Soil Nails in Loose Fill Slopes” by the Geotechnical Division of The Hong Kong Institution of Engineer (HKIE-GD) in 2003, much experience has accrued in respect of the design and construction of soil nails for upgrading loose fill slopes. The present study, initiated by the Geotechnical Engineering Office (GEO), Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD), aims to consolidate the experience gained and explore possible improvements in the design methodology and enhancements in robustness and detailing. This report presents the findings of the study, together with a set of design recommendations which supplement the guidelines given in the HKIE-GD Report (HKIE, 2003).
