The bedding profile is defined by the specified ground layers. The bedding as well as the strength that maintains the soil pressure could vary over the height. By defining different horizontal bedding values a variation in the circumferential direction is also realised.
During the generation of the system beam elements with the given soil properties will be assigned to each pile (edge with the meaning 'pile beam') that resides inside the bedding profile.
The stress in the system results from the dead load, traffic and earth pressure. The internal forces resulting from calculating the system will be subsequently used to design the pile cross sections and the anchors.
