Abstract The ultimate shear strength at the interface between the soil nail and surrounding soil is of practical importance in the design and performance of a soil nail system. The most commonly adopted method of measuring this interface shear strength is by a soil nail pullout testing. This study introduces a novel soil nail system in the form of a screw nail and compares its performance with a conventional grouted soil nail. Both types of soil nails are tested in a controlled laboratory setting using residual soil in a large purpose made pullout box. The development of the new screw nail and the laboratory testing procedures are briefly mentioned first followed by presentation and discussion of the results on the interface shear behaviour measured from pullout tests. It is shown that the screw nail offer many advantages in terms of pullout load-displacement behaviour and the interface shear mechanism than that the grouted soil nail
