Structure Below Ground Level

Why does the integration/support of my building in the ground below the ground level not work?


Answer:

In order to consider the support of the structure in the soil correctly, it is necessary to excavate the soil accordingly or to provide the solid with a corresponding opening.

  • To model the excavation, the solids of the "Intersection" or "Hole" type are suitable for cutting the excavation geometry into the soil solid.
  • As an alternative, you can model the excavation manually by modifying the boundary surfaces of the soil solids. When using a soil massif, select the "Soil Solid" type.
