A new concept for constructing the facing of soil-nailed walls is proposed and validated through experimental and numerical approaches. This new process uses precast concrete panels. For each excavation step, the soil reinforcements are first connected to the panels. A slightly cemented 4–6-mm crushed stone is then injected, through the weep holes, between the panels and the excavation vertical cut,...
