Currently, I have the problem that the calculation in RF-SOILIN takes extremely long and does not converge. What can I do?


Often, these problems can be solved easily and effectively.

Especially in the edge areas of plates, the results often oscillate. In this case, the result can be improved by modeling a foundation overlap with a negligible thickness around the surface. It is assigned the same foundation as the main plate. The foundation overlap shows the edge area of the plate more accurately and the convergence behavior is often better.

It is important to obey the rule that the foundation overlap must be extended at least so far that the basin is completely subsided.
Thus, it is also possible to represent graphically the influence of settlement on surrounding buildings.
