Abstract

Soil nailing can be used for retaining both temporary and permanent excavations. One of the successful applications of this technique includes the Singapore expressway project (Raju, 1996). As a part of this research work, one project of soil nailing has been completed in M/s Hero Cycles Industries, Ludhiana, India, where nailing has been used for stabilization of steel columns footings, meant for electrically operated gantry crane. Construction details and numerical analysis of nailed cut is described in this paper. KEYWORDS: Driven nails, foundation stabilization, nailed cut, pull-out tests, shotcreting.
