The latest version of Ple4Win 4.1.0 is now available. Please visit to download this version of Ple4Win with the new feature 'Soil Model Wizard'.

Version history can be found in the attachment below:

The Soil Model Wizard is an add-on module for Ple4Win that simplifies the obtainment of soil mechanical values through basic soil properties.

The soil tables in Ple4Win (Design Function 3.2) need to be filled with soil mechanical values. Obtaining these values is often problematic. Little is known and you might be glad just having information about the different soil types and layers. The Soil Model Wizard makes it easy to derive soil mechanical values from the information of the soil.

The Soil Model Wizard guides the user step by step in order to generate the soil mechanical values. Calculation of soil mechanical values is based on formula's from the Dutch Institute of Normalisation as given in NEN3650. Some default soil types are predefined within the Soil Model Wizard. These soil types and (most of) their properties are specified in NEN6740.

For all Ple4Win users, please send an email with the context* file to to activate the Soil Model Wizard for a limited trial period.
