I'm trying to perfom a fully coupled flow deformation analysis in Plaxis 2D considering infiltration to simulate rainfall data.
The phase is after the initial one, when not considering the boundaries for the infiltration, the phase is calculated, but when I try to active the infiltration in the surface boundary I get this: Ultimate state not reached in groundwater flow analysis. [Error code: 34]
I have checked the inputs and the properties all seems to be good. It may be refers to the infiltration setting.
Any help wil be appreciated.
Indeed, this error can be encountered when the boundary conditions or the material properties (e.g. permeabilities) or the mesh requires some attention.

Many thanks for the quick response,
I modified the boundary conditions and now the phase is calculated. However, when I check the output there is no variation in suction which it shouldn't be, since the model have a rainfall time-dependent function.
How can I solve this?
As I do not have enough information, I would first suggest checking that the Ignore suction option in the Phase window for that specific phase is unchecked.
