I have got several bedded surfaces with line hinges between each other. Is foundation also applied in the area of line hinges?


Figure 1 shows an example. There, you can see that the same contact stresses are generated at each location of the surfaces and thus the foundation springs have been applied correctly everywhere.

Since line hinges are internal line releases, the same applies to the line releases.
