Soil nailing is one of the soil reinforcement techniques that has been used worldwide in geotechnical engineering. In Viet Nam, soil nailing technology applied in a number of transportation investments such as Ha Long - Van Don, Bac Giang - Lang Son highways, and some of the hydropower plants in the central provinces of Viet Nam. Soil nailing is a system consisting of reinforced concrete piles and rebars or composite rods installed in an inclined direction into the slope. The research and applications of soil nailing technology to reinforceslopes in Viet Nam have not been widespread. The authors only considered construction technologies, processes, requirements for the materials, equipment, quality - check of soil nails, etc. The optimal geometries of soil nails for the stability of slope are inadequate and analyzed thoroughly. These lead to inaccurate prediction of the construction stabilization effect and the safety of designed structures. In the present study, numerical simulations were conducted to investigate the effects of the inclined angle and the length of soil nail Patterns and subjected to surcharge loads on stability improvement of soil - nailed slopes and facing deformation in a staged - excavation. The research results show that the soil nail reinforcement efficiency could be affected by inclinations and length Pattern s of soil nails. The general conclusion is that the more soil is nailing inclinations, the more the reinforcing forces in the soil nails. The soil nail length Patterns have also influenced displacement characteristics of slopes.
