Properties of soil profiles

Profile name:

Identity name of soil profile

Required

Profile top:

Whether the profile top is fixed at: Ground level or customized

Required / Prescribed name

(Ground level: The uppermost soil layer is, when the profile is assigned to a specific location, set from ground level to ground level minus the layer height (Ground level heights can vary for different locations within the project).
Customized: The uppermost layer of a profile is, when the profile is assigned to a specific location, set from z=specified custom value to minus the layer height. This specified custom value matches with the global z value as defined in the project.
 
For calculation, if necessary, the height of the lowermost soil layer is extended to reach a depth of 1.5 times the diameter under the pipeline axis. Also, when the profile is fixed at a specified value and ground level lies above, the height of the uppermost soil layer is extended to reach, at least, the ground level.)

Profile soil layers:

Soil types in a specific order and with specified heights

Required

(At least one soil layer should be specified.)
