Adding Soil Nails in LimitState:GEO

Here a pre-defined marginal slope is reinforced with soil nails, improving the adequacy of the slope from 1 to 4.5. The technique for adding soil nails is demonstrated, which involves splitting solids with a line before defining the length of the soil nail with a vertex.

Exact positioning of the nails can be achieved with construction lines or by editing vertex positions - for simplicity these are not demonstrated in the video.

More examples of models including soil nails with LimitState:GEO are available in the downloadable examples page, and there are sections on the theory of modelling engineered elements (including soil nails), and a benchmark calculation in the manual.
