Simulation: Factor of Safety Plots – Highlighting the Areas of Concern

Factor of Safety Distribution

The default Factor of Safety (FOS) plot would show the distribution of values over the entire model with a colour chart.  Typically you would modify the colour chart to have the Minimum value as your required FOS.  The regions in red are the areas of concern.  However depending ... Read More
