Can I define my own soil layers for a soil profile with soil constants?

Answer

Yes, you can. You can create your own soil profile that meets your requirements.

By default, there is a soil layer with the thickness of 10 m and a 'Gravel, Well-Graded (GW) applied to the soil profile.

In the dialog box for creating the soil profile, you can define an individual soil profile for your construction project and also define new additional soil layers here. See Figure 01.

There are various materials available in the material library. See Figure 02.

You can specify thicknesses of the individual layers. The interactive graphic on the right side of the dialog box helps you to check the entry. It is possible to adjust the soil parameters individually for the respective layer (see Figure 03) and to reject the values in the library. As soon as you adjust the soil parameter, the name of the soil layer is marked with *.
