Soil structure interaction

RTbodenmodell - Option soil model for TRIMAS® fem and PONTI®

Overview

  • Soil model using the half-space approach
  • Use of finite volume elements
  • Gap elements for soil/structure interaction
  • Consideration of loss of bedding
  • Evaluation of corresponding structure settlements
  • Consideration of inclined soil layers
  • Input of drilling profiles
  • Verification of optimal modelling depth
  • Verification of soil stresses
  • Verification of base failure

 

Benefits of RTbodenmodell

The option RTsoilstructure fem provides the possibility to record the subsidences of buildings realistically. In contrast to the bedding module method, subsidence prognoses can be made more accurately. The fully graphically interactive processing enables fast familiarisation and provides the following advantages for the development of projects:

  • Complex spatial building-soil models can be defined with only few parameters
  • Simple, area-oriented input of the subsoil at the ground level
  • Input of 3D objects for the soil model is avoided completely
  • Almost arbitrary layer composition even with sloping layers
  • Superpositions of stress from different buildings are recorded
  • Integral structure model usually supports economic design of floor slabs
