How many soil samples do I need to define in RF-SOILIN to get realistic results?


Basically, a soil sample is enough to determine the terrain model or the soil structure. However, if the layer thicknesses along the foundation body change, further soil samples should of course be defined (see Figure 1). The result of the floor structure can be displayed in the screen view of RFEM (see Figure 2).
