Abstract :

In the recent past, urbanization is increasing in geometric proportion .This calls for the optimum utilization of available land, which is limited, by providing underground structures and tall buildings. This makes the need for deep excavation, which is a technically challenging problem. The use of the “NAILED SOIL WALL” technique is proved as one of the economical temporary retaining structures for deep excavation and is being practiced worldwide. In this project “SNAILZ software” which is a widely used computer program developed by CALTRAN division of materials and foundation is used to analyze a nailed soil wall. It uses soil and nail parameters such as nail diameter and inclination to arrive at the minimum factor of safety. Analysis of selected nailed wall was carried out with software program and is compared with the experimental results. The difference in working load calculated using SNAILZ software and from experiments was found to be less than 10%.Which shows a good agreement between the experimental results and the results obtained from numerical analysis.
