To input data in the FEM program slightly differs from our other programs in that it requires defining the topology of the structure prior to any calculation. This step includes introduction of interfaces between individual layers of soils, line constructions, parameters of soils and interfaces and at last generation of the finite element mesh. To avoid unexpected errors when creating a computational model the user should first become familiar with available coordinate systems.
The topology input regime is selected by clicking the "Topo" button on the horizontal bar "Construction Stages".
Bar "Stages of construction" - switching between "Topology" regime and calculation stages
The actual analysis is performed in individual stages of construction (calculation stages), which allow the user to define activity of structures, to input beams, anchors and surcharge, to model the effect of water, etc.
Depending on the selected regime the vertical tool bar also adjusted.
