How can I use RFEM to check if my model has been designed for Eg when exposed to groundwater?


For this, the Duo Duct on the bottom side of the foundation body has to be determined and the load z. For example, apply surface loads. Then, you can adjust the properties of the nodal support, line support, or surface support such that it fails if the model is pulled or lifted (see Figure and example model).
