How can I find out how is the self-weight of a foundation plate or any imposed load on the foundation plate considered in the designs?

Answer

For all designs performed in RF‑/FOUNDATION Pro, you can view and check the design details including all intermediate values.

To view the intermediate results, open the result window '2.2 Governing Design Criteria'. Here, select the design type from the upper table, for example, 'Ground failure (EC 7, 6.5.2)'. A detailed table appears in the lower part of the dialog box and shows all intermediate values for this design.

So you can see how the self-weight of the foundation plate is determined and applied to the respective design, for example. Or how the earth covering is considered in the design.

Partial factors change depending on the design. This is also apparent from the intermediate values.
