Nail Force

The magnitude of active earth pressure is reduced using a coefficient kn. The recommended (experimentally determined) value is kn = 0,85.

Forces transmitted by individual nails are determined such that a particular portion of the calculated earth pressure is assigned to a given bench. Each nail is then loaded by the corresponding portion of the active earth pressure.

Forces transmitted by individual nails

The nail force is provided by:
