In this paper, seismic design of nailed soil slopes are presented based on pseudo-dynamic approach. This method incorporates a finite shear wave velocity based on the assumption that the shear modulus is constant and only the phase not the magnitude of acceleration is varying with depth. The results obtained are compared with pseudo-static approach. The effect of seismic force on the location on the failure plane ha~ been presented. The effects of inclination of the nails and the coefficient of horizontal acceleration on the required reinforcement force have been studied.
