In PLAXIS 2D 2016, when copying a material dataset from the Global Material Database to your local material database, there is an issue with two thermal parameters due to unit conversion. The values are incorrectly converted to parameter values using the currently selected project units.
The affected parameters are:
This is an issue for Soil, Plate, Geogrid and Anchor material datasets.
When using the default Plaxis units, these values are incorrectly multiplied by 1000 when copying them to your local material database.
This issue has been resolved in PLAXIS 2D 2017.00
In PLAXIS 2D 2016.00 and PLAXIS 2D 2016.01, when copying the soil material dataset from the global material please check these thermal properties with care, and correct them when necessary.
