For most soil models with a Mohr-Coulomb failure criterion, a tension cut-off option with a tensile strength value is available in order to limit the (effective) tensile stress.However, for the constitutive models mentioned below, these edit fields for the tension cut-off in the material database are not available:
The tension cut-off option is available in the material dataset and is correctly used in the calculation for:
The issue with the UDSM interface tension cut-off is not resolved yet.
Workaround for versions prior to PLAXIS CONNECT Edition Version 22If the user wants to control and set the value for the tension cut-off to a different one for Soft Soil Creep (in Versions 2D2012.0 and earlier and 3D2012.02 and earlier), or for the User Defined Soil Model interface parameters, this trick can be used:
