Creation of Soil Profile from a Borehole
If the soil profile is created from the borehole, the "Copy profile from field test" button copies all layers as they were entered in the "Field Tests" frame. Using "Add soils" checkbox, all types of soils are also copied from the field test.
The real boreholes contain a large amount of soil layers, however, a geotechnical engineer works with the simplified model. The geotechnical types are used for this simplification. In the Stratigraphy program the boreholes are entered exactly (with all soil layers), the simplification is performed when soil profiles are created - these profiles represent the geotechnical model. It is advantegous to create and edit soil profiles when geological sections are modeled.
Dialog Window "Edit Test Profile" - Borehole
An originally entered field test (borehole) is displayed in the left part of the dialog window. In the right part, the soil profile is displayed. Thickness of layers and assigned types of soils can be modified.
