The display of soil properties C and Fhi is optional. Also it is optional to display many borings together (Figure B-49).

Soil colors according to German Standard DIN 4023 is considered automatically, if desired, in the drawing of boring logs (Figure B-50).

You can define the language of the help system used in ELPLA applications (Figure B-43 to B-46). The three languages are English, German and Arabic.

You can determine the stresses, strains and displacements in soil under the foundation in a net in z-direction (Figures B-35 to B-38).

ELPLA can display results of stresses, strains and displacements in different forms such as:

- Soil deformation as deformed mesh (Figure B-39).
- Soil deformation as vectors (Figure B-41).
- Principal soil stresses as streaks (Figure B-41).
- Principal soil strains as streaks (Figure B-42).

Besides the three different analyses available in the program ELPLA to analyze foundations and floor slabs, a new analysis "Analysis of grid" is added (Figures B-33 and B-34).
