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


Essentially, a soil sample is sufficient to define the terrain model or soil structure. However, if the layer thicknesses change along the foundation body, further soil samples should be defined, of course (see Figure 01).

The result of the soil structure can be displayed in the screen view of RFEM (see Figure 02).
