Design and Application of Special Slop Retaining
Taking the design of composite soil-nailing in deep foundation pit in complex surroundings for example, the paper discusses numerical analysis of soil-nailing using FLAC, a general analysis program of geotechnical engineering, used to predict the displacement and interior force in soil-nailing. Furthermore, a comparison about the interior force in soil nails between the numerical analysis and the traditional methods is made. The measurements show that the numerical analysis is more accurate than traditional methods. The conclusion is drawn that by contrast with the deficiency of traditional methods, more satisfactory results can be got from numerical analysis on composite soil-nailing using the program of FLAC.
