E-modulus of soil has been changed

E-modulus of soil has been changed
This footnote has been changed in the current NEN 3650-1:2020.


This will affect KLS. The E100 value needs to be converted in a different way.

If the effective vertical grain pressure is greater then 100 kPa the E-modulus will increase (for example with HDDs) and if it is lower then 100 kPa the E-modulus will decrease.

Can this be taken into account in the next version of the Soil Model Wizard in Ple4Win.

RE: E-modulus of soil has been changed
Thank you for mentioning this change, we are of course aware of the new version of this norm.

We are in the process of implementing all relevant changes of the new NEN3650-1:2020 code into the soil modeling wizard.
The new way of calculating the Young's Modulus is one of those changes.

For the sake of completeness, ticket J-2365 has been assigned to this issue.
