Determining stresses, strains and displacements in soil


You can determine the stresses, strains and displacements in soil under the foundation in a net in z-direction (Figures B-35 to B-38).

ELPLA can display results of stresses, strains and displacements in different forms such as:

- Soil deformation as deformed mesh (Figure B-39).
- Soil deformation as vectors (Figure B-41).
- Principal soil stresses as streaks (Figure B-41).
- Principal soil strains as streaks (Figure B-42).
