Foundation Analysis - Undrained Parameters

Question:

Hi all,

I am trying to run calculations on Soilworks, using undrained parameters.

The first layer should be assumed as free-standing. Thus, lower values shall be assumed.

An error message is shown as I try to run analysis, stating something relating to "floating".


Could you please take a look at the attached file.



Kind regards



Answer:

Hello,

The reason is: the modelling way is not acceptable for this.
The soil property (unit weight) as input 10-20 times smaller, and it seems that the analysis cannot run.
Solver cannot interpret correctly such difference in unit weight,

Regards,
Piotr
