The "Soils" frame contains a table with a list of input soils. The table also provides information about currently selected soil displayed in the right part of the frame. If there are more items (soils) selected in the table, the information about individual soils is ordered consecutively.
The soil characteristics needed in the program are further specified in the following chapters: "Uplift pressure" and "Settlement analysis". In consolidation analysis the coefficient of permeability or consolidation coefficient must be entered. The input parameters of soils are determined based on the selected theory of analysis in the "Settlement" tab.
The particular values are obtained from a geotechnical survey or from laboratory experiments. If these data are not available, it is possible to exploit the built-in database of soils, which contains values of selected characteristics of soils.
Data of input soils can be copied within all GEO5 programs using "GeoClipboard".
