I have simulated a bored pile using a member and now I want to simulate the surface friction with a member foundation. Can I also enter this member elastic foundation linearly variable via the height?

Answer

No, this is not possible.

The member elastic foundation is basically constant over the length of the member.

If you want to enter a variable member foundation based on the height of the bored pile, you have to divide the bored pile into individual members and specify different constant foundations on the individual members. Thus, the linear distribution of a foundation can be approximately simulated.
