Question

Currently, I have the problem that the calculation in RF-SOILIN takes extremely long time and does not converge. What can I do?

Answer

These problems can often be solved easily and efficiently.

Especially in the edge areas of plates, it is common that the results oscillate. In this case, the result can be improved by modeling a foundation overlap with negligible thickness around the surface. The same foundation is assigned to this as the main plate. The foundation overlap shows the edge area of the plate more accurately and the convergence behavior is often better.

It is important to extend the foundation overlap at least so far that the basin is completely subsided. Thus, it is also possible to graphically display the influence of the settlement on the surrounding buildings.
