Tutorial 29 - Tensile Strength Option

This tutorial illustrates the new Tensile Strength option in the Material Properties dialog. If you define a Tensile Strength, the tension crack depth is automatically found, without the need to manually define a tension crack boundary. This is very useful for models which exhibit tensile interslice forces, such as often occurs with cohesive soils in the upper slope.
