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.
Thanks Stefanos, it appears that no matter adding the geogrids and without them, the settlement will not be changed. How could I add the geogrid correctly? I used the updated mesh option already.
We will need to check what is being modelled to be able to understand why the geogrids are not reducing the settlements.
