Report Title : Review of Limit Equilibrium Methods for Soil Nail Design (2007), 107 p.

Author : Y.K. Shiu, G.W.K. Chang & W.M. Cheung


This Report presents the results of a review study on various limit equilibrium methods commonly used for the soil nail design in Hong Kong, in an attempt to examine some issues and concerns raised by the practitioners.

Analysis of soil-nailed slopes using the programme SLOPE/W has been carried out to examine these issues. From the study, some observations and recommendations on the slope stability analysis of soil-nailed slopes using limit equilibrium methods of slices are provided.
