FEM – Consolidation


Time Dependent Settlement Analysis


  • The Consolidation module is used to perform time dependent settlement analysis under foundations, embankments and surface loads (surcharges). Consolidation is an extension module of the program FEM* for analysis of geotechnical problems.

The module FEM – Consolidation contains the following capabilities:

  • calculation of the soil deformation and settlement in time caused by external load
  • constant or time dependent load
  • multiple construction stages 

* The module is not available separately. The FEM program is required.
