Why do I have to define a soil profile in FOUNDATION Pro? I have already specified the allowable soil pressure.

Answer

The soil profile in RF‑/FOUNDATION Pro is not only required for the determination of the allowable soil pressure.

It is necessary to also enter the soil profile when performing one of the following designs:
- Ground failure design by determining the resistance according to EN 1997‑1 Annex D
- Sliding resistance design
- Settlement calculation

If the ground failure resistance is specified by the user and the settlement calculation and the sliding resistance design are deactivated, the evaluation of the soil profile is not required by the program and the dialog box for entering the soil profile is disabled.
