Babu, Sivakumar GL and Singh, Vikas Pratap (2011) Reliability-based load and resistance factors for soil-nail walls. In: Canadian Geotechnical Journal / Revue Canadienne de Géotechnique, 48 (6). pp. 915-930.Full text not available from this repository.
Existing soil nailing design methodologies are essentially based on limit equilibrium principles that together with a lumped factor of safety or a set of partial factors on the material parameters and loads account for uncertainties in design input parameter values. Recent trends in the development of design procedures for earth retaining structures are towards load and resistance factor design (LRFD). In the present study, a methodology for the use of LRFD in the context of soil-nail walls is proposed and a procedure to determine reliability-based load and resistance factors is illustrated for important strength limit states with reference to a 10 m high soil-nail wall. The need for separate partial factors for each limit state is highlighted, and the proposed factors are compared with those existing in the literature.
