Instrumentation and Long Term Monitoring of a Soil Nailed Slope at Madeira Walk, Exmouth, UK


This paper describes the field instrumentation of a soil nailed slope undertaken at Madeira Walk, Exmouth, UK. The instrumentation consists of strain gauged steel bars that are employed as soil nails to maintain stability of a slope. The nature of the stabilisation works and the instrumentation used to monitor the axial load induced in the soil nails are described. Initial results are presented showing the changes in axial load induced in the nails.
