If I query the boundary with a tunnel liner, do the results represent the liner or the soil just outside of the liner?

All queries relate to the results in the solid elements (rock or soil), not the liners or the joint elements.  The Query Boundary function has three options:

  • On the Boundary
  • Inside the Excavation (offset distance specified by the user)
  • Outside the Excavation (offset distance specified by the user)



Query Boundary dialog


Note that if you create a query inside the excavation, after the material has already been excavated, no results will be displayed.  Query data is only displayed when there is material present at the query location.
