In this tutorial a Ultimate Limit State (ULS) calculation will be defined and performed for the submerged construction of an excavation. The geometry model of Tutorial 03 will be used. The Design approaches feature is introduced in this example. This feature allows for the use of partial factors for loads and model parameters after a serviceability calculation has already been performed.
In order to inspect the calculation results, please recalculate the Plaxis project: the results are not included to minimize the download size.
