DESIGN& CONSTRUCTION GUIDELINES FOR A SOIL NAIL WALL SYSTEM GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING MANUAL EB Page 1 of 13 GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING MANUAL: DESIGN& CONSTRUCTION GUIDELINES FOR A SOIL NAIL WALL SYSTEM GEM21 Revision# 4 STATE OF NEW YORK DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION The Inspector will ensure that the nail The purpose of this manual is to provide field inspectors with the knowledge necessary to effectively monitor and document the construction of soil nail retaining walls.
The manual provides information useful to both the experienced and inexperienced soil nail inspector. The manual is organized into The purpose of this manual is to facilitate the implementation of soil nailing into the American transportation design and construction practice and to provide guidance for selecting, designing, and specifying soil nailing where it is technically suited and economically attractive.
The technique of soil nailing has been increasing its popularity among contractors because it offers an effective and costeffective retaining system for a variety of ground conditions.
The technique has been Soil Nailing Field Inspectors ManualSoil Nail Walls 1993: FHWASA: PB (20 mb) Geotechnical Research Publications 2000: FHWARD Research: Performance Test for Geosynthectic Reinforced Soil including effect of Preloading 2001: FHWARD Caltrans Geotechnical Manual.
