Soil Nailing: A Local Perspective

Since its introduction in Wisconsin in the late 1980's, soil nailing has become widely recognized as a cost-effective means of temporary and permanent earth retention. This paper discusses one geotechnical engineer's design philosophy, and describes important design and construction issues that have evolved over the past 15 years. A case history involving the design and construction of a 50 ft. deep soil nail wall on the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus is also presented.
