Soil nailing is a reinforcement technique used in constructing excavations and stabilizing slopes by reinforcing the ground in situ. The number of horizontal or inclined nails and their spacing is a key issue. The aim of this work is optimization of soil nailing parameters using genetic algorithm method. We look to obtain the optimal design and improve the parameters of soil nailing which affect stability. Analysis and parametric study of effect of algorithm configuration was carried out to search for optimum combination of the design variables to satisfy the required safety factor. The obtained results are discussed in comparison to existing literature.
