You helped me alot, how can I forgot you :-)
Dear Mr. Rushan,
Nice to see you after a long time.
Thanks for the great help, I will go through it. Thanks for sharing your presentation screenshots and video.
Ramtin, I share your frustration with meshing. I always seem to be under a lot of time constraints to bring my models in on budget and schedule and it is usually meshing that is a prime concern and my biggest unknow. I've found that Plaxis has made great…
The global settings (Medium, Fine, etc.) can assist but it is highly dependent on the model dimensions, as explained in our Reference manual.
Apart from the global coarseness, there are local refinement options (coarseness factor) to be considered…
I'm not using Plaxis 3D , but i have tell some ways using Plaxis 2D options (hope both outputs have same options)
1. Mesh => Cluster borders (F8)
2. View => Settings (F10)
Here you can assign the colours to cluster…
In the Total displacements plot the maximum displacement is taken from only the soil. In the Deformed mesh plot the maximum total displacement includes the structural elements as well. So apparently in your case the maximum total displacement…
The phreatic level is not more than the level where the pore pressures are zero and below which the soil is fully saturated. However, above the phreatic level the soil is not dry.If in the calculation suction is alllowed then the soil above the phreatic…
Please note that the strength increases during consolidation if there are excess pore pressures that are being dissipated. However, in case there are excess pore tensions to be dissipated then the strength decreases during consolidation. A known phenomena…

Rushan Gizzatullin is right here. The links for the related articles are indeed helpful.
PLAXIS makes sure that the right number of cores are utilized which highly depend on the degrees of freedom of the analysis (dynamic being the most…
With PLAXIS 3D CONNECT Edition V20 Update 2 it is possible to generate the mesh via the command line using a series…
I have already responded to you via the Service request but it is nice to share this information.
For the safety factors, you can use either Input or Output program. I will give you both options below:
No problem, I will do my best to make it clear.
1) Both methods are in principle correct, but with updated mesh analysis it's possible to calculate higher levels of deformation and also with higher accuracy. However, updated mesh analysis is generally…
Let met try to answer all questions in one go
1) In a normal stress analysis the strain increments in the soil are based on the deformation relative to the undeformed mesh and in a updated mesh analysis the strain increments are calculated based on…
