Recently, it was found that when more than one design approach definition is present in a project, it can happen that some partial factors are not correctly applied.This can only happen when more than one design approach definition is created in the Plaxis project file.
With only one design approach definition in the Plaxis project file it works correctly.
This issue is now resolved in PLAXIS 2D AE.00
Currently, no workarounds are available for this in PLAXIS 2D Classic or PLAXIS 2D 2012. Plaxis advises not to create more than one design approach in a single Plaxis project file when using PLAXIS 2D Classic or PLAXIS 2D 2012.
