We are trying to model foundation piles as a frame element with discrete points spring ( P-y , T-Z & Q-z ) spaced at 1.00 m segmentation of the depth, so the question now what is the most exact method can we extract piles points springs verses depth from plaxis 3d analysis.
Actually once I do that the results are not converged with the structural analysis software in terms of axial force distribuations for the fraem element copmared to embedded beam element in plaxis , I think we are doing something wrong in anaysis data extractions
what we are doing is : we are dividing the load transferred for each meter ( segment ) by the occurred displacement of that segment only.
is that correct ?. please advise and thanks for help and collaboration.
It will be helpful for us to check the project and comment on that.
