Earth reinforcement hits the nail on the head

Summary

A new project from CIRIA, ‘Soil nailing: best practice’, will offer guidance on the design, installation and testing of soil nails from knowledge gathered from the UK and abroad.
The technique of soil nailing is seen to be a more sustainable method of reinforcing earth structures and it is hoped that this project will help to increase its use throughout the industry.
