The Green document status indicator indicates that the document is: a current in the Construction Information Service and b the latest version - ie it does not have any other documents that replace or amend it and is promoted as a current document by the publisher. The Amber document status indicator indicates that some caution is needed when using this document - it is either: a current in the Construction Information Service but has a document or documents that replace or amend it, so please look at the "Newer Versions" tab or b not in the Construction Information Service but with another reason why it may be relevant to our customers such as being cited in NBS or in the Building Regulations Approved Documents. Again there may be more recent versions of the document. The Red document status indicator indicates that the document is an old version The document has likely been withdrawn by the publisher, also the meta data presented here may be out of date as it is no longer being maintained by the editorial teams at NBS.

PUB C637 Soil nailing - best practice guidance

Voodooll This research was conducted primarily at the University of Davis by Bang et al. Creep displacements and the force distribution changes in the nails caused by creep effects were observed. Soil crack generation may occur more than once, resulting in several sudden decrease-increase changes as shown in Figures 5. Soil nailing has been found to be the most cost-effective method for larger projects that require considerable excavation using conventional methods FHWA As introduced in Section 3.
