How do I activate the earth covering (permanent)? The corresponding check box is deactivated.

Answer

As soon as RF‑FOUNDATION Pro has determined the ground failure resistance according to EN 1997‑1 Annex D and/or performed the sliding resistance design, it is necessary to enter the soil profile.

For this, see also FAQ 002748.

In this case, the soil profile entry also controls the location of the earth covering.
See Figure 01.

The weight density applied to the earth covering can also be defined in the dialog box for the soil profile.

If you manually set the allowable ground pressure and deactivate the sliding resistance design, it will not be necessary to enter the soil profile. In this case, you can specify the earth covering directly in the dialog box 1.4. See Figure 02.
