I am getting red values displayed in the intermediate results of RF-SOILIN. What is it all about?


In case of the result values are displayed in red, it refers to an error message.
The defined thickness z is then not sufficient. The standard specifies that the thickness must be calculated up to the value where sigma_Z is ≦ 0.2* sigma_ü. In the graphic, 0.2 * sigma_ü is displayed as a gray line, sigma_Z as red.

The layer structure should have such a thickness that both lines intersect.
In Figure 1, the two lines do not intersect, so that the values are displayed in red and a sufficient thickness must be defined.
