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


Often, these problems can be solved easily and effectively.

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

It is important that the foundation collar at least reaches sufficiently far that the settlement depression has subsided completely. Thus, it is also possible to graphically represent the influence of settlement on surrounding buildings graphically.
