Sign Convention in Elements in the results for foundation module of soilworks


Dear Support Team,

Please find the attached file which explains my query

Hi Sir

Please note that the results for displacements is as per global coordinate system as highlighted in the image sent by you but in Soilworks for the pile element(defined as beam element), it is as per element coordinate system and hence ECS-x represents the vertical force as shown in the image below.

Hope you find the above information useful

Thanks & Regards
