I am doing a simulation for a geogrid-reinforced piled embankment using Plaxis3D. I encountered a problem when trying to get the tensile strain in the geogrid, but it seems that it cannot be done directly. How can we obtain the strain from the geogrid element?
ps : I created a surface and then assigned it as a geogrid.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to see the strain results in Output program. I am afraid you will need to compute them manually based on the current deformations.
I have reported your request to our developers to be considered for the future versions of PLAXIS.
