Lock Properties

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewReturn to Top Next page












Locking volume-mass properties is a feature provided within SoilVision to prevent changes to laboratory measured volume-mass information. Volume-mass information can be found on the volume-mass dialog. Up to three properties can be locked. Locking more than three properties will result in a soil state that is over-defined.


The Lock Properties function examines the current soil information. If fewer than four volume-mass properties have been entered, it is assumed that the properties represent the soil state and are locked. The locked soil properties can then be used as the basis for completing the volume-mass calculations.


If more than three volume-mass properties are present, the soil is considered to be over-defined and no properties are locked.


If less than three properties are already locked, additional volume-mass properties can be locked until a total of three properties are locked.
