Bond strength - slide

Bond strength - slide


When modelling soil nails in Slide software, is the "Bond strength" input the interaction between bar-grout or soil-grout?

RE: Bond strength - slide

Don't use Slide but bond is usually grout to ground (sides of drill hole).


RE: Bond strength - slide

Thanks PEinc,

What are the limitations of slide, and what do you recommend?

RE: Bond strength - slide

I don't have or use Slide for my soil nail wall designs. Are you designing with service loads and allowable stresss or are you using factored loads with resistance factors?


RE: Bond strength - slide

I see what you mean.

I am using ASD method, but checking global stability through Slide.

RE: Bond strength - slide

If you are looking for Slide to give you a safety factor, then you probably are entering allowable soil properties and soil nail properties. Your global safety factor should be between about 1.3 and 1.5 depending on your particular project and whether the wall is temporary or permanent.
