DeformCalcType
Deformation Calculation Type

For the initial phase:
K0 procedure
This calculation type can be used to define the initial stresses for the model, taking into account the loading history of the soil.
Gravity loading
The phase will be calculated using a plastic calculation, in which initial stresses are generated based on the volumetric weight of the soil.
Flow only
The phase will be calculated using no effective stresses.
For the non initial phases:
Plastic
The phase will be calculated using an elasticplastic deformation analysis according to small deformation theory where undrained behaviour is considered.
Consolidation
This calculation type can be used to analyse the development and dissipation of excess pore pressures in a saturated claytype soil as a function of time.
Safety
A global safety factor will be calculated for the phase.
Dynamic
Dynamic loading in the sense of increasing or decreasing a predefined combination of external dynamic forces.
Fully coupled flowdeformation
Timedependent ananlysis of deformation and (total) pore pressures. Input of soil permeabilities is required for this calculation. It uses nonzero time interval.
PorePresCalcType
Pore Pressure Calculation Type

Phreatic
Direct generation of steadystate pore pressures from phreatic level and clusterrelated conditions.
Use pressures from previous phase
This calculation uses steadystate pore pressures from the parent phase as input for the current deformation analysis.
Steady state groundwater flow
Flow calcultaion to determine steadystate pore pressures and phreatic level based on hydraulic conditions. Input of soil permeability is required.
Transient groundwater flow
Timedependent flow calculation to determine pore pressures and phreatic level based on hydraulic conditions. Input of soil permeability is required. This type of calculation uses nonzero time interval.
