Description:This British Standard contains recommendations and guidance for
the application of reinforcement techniques to soils, as fill or in situ,
and to other fills. The standard is written in a limit state format and
guidelines are provided in terms of partial material factors and load
factors for various applications and design lives.
This code is to be read in conjunction with BS EN 1997-1:2004,
NA to BS EN 1997-1:2004 and BS EN 14475:2006.
BS EN 1997-1:2004 does not cover the design and execution of
reinforced soil structures. The values of partial factors and load factors
given in BS EN 1997-1:2004 have not been calibrated for reinforced soil
structures. BS EN 1997-1:2004 is not for use in the design and execution
of reinforced soil. The partial factors set out in BS 8006-1 cannot be
replaced by similar factors in BS EN 1997-1:2004.
The code is divided into eight sections. Section 1 identifies the scope,
definitions and notation of the code. Section 2 describes the concepts
and fundamental principles of reinforced soil. Section 3 provides
recommendations for the use of materials where existing standards
are available. Where materials are used that are not covered by
existing standards or where known materials are to be used in ways
not covered by existing standards Section 4 gives recommendations
for the testing and approval of such materials.
Sections 5 to 8 relate to design, construction and maintenance of
walls and abutments, slopes and foundations. They include specific
recommendations for characterization of the soils to be used and other
factors affecting the design and performance of the structures. Emphasis
is placed on quality control both with regard to the consistency of the
properties of the fill and reinforcing materials and to the handling of
the materials on site.
In line with current practice the design methods described are based
on limit state principles. The partial factors included are based on
previous experience and have been calibrated to maintain consistency
with current practice.
The clauses are supplemented by a substantial list of references to
enable the user to consider in greater depth the applications of the
Overview: What is BS 8006-1:2010?Civil engineers often use reinforced materials in soils for the construction of retaining walls, steep embankments and basal strengthening. This code of good practice has been updated to include the latest information about new methods of soil reinforcement – now used widely for a range of design lives and service requirements. BS 8006-1 demonstrates how to apply reinforcement techniques to soils, as fill or in situ, and to other fills. These guidelines refer to partial material factors and load factors for a wide variety of applications and design lives. How does it work?BS 8006-1 looks at the concepts and fundamental principles of soil mechanics and defines construction materials. It also explains soil testing procedures for design purposes and sets out the fundamental principles of design. BS 8006-1 covers walls, reinforced slopes, plus the design of embankments with reinforced soil foundations on poor ground.
