Concrete beams. How to know the bearing pressure transmitted by a foundation beam to the soil when this bearing pressure is less than the allowable

If you wish to know the value of the bearing pressure transmitted by a foundation beam to the soil, when this bearing pressure is less than the allowable bearing pressure, simply reduce the value of the allowable bearing pressure to the minimum value allowed by the program. This way, given that the program informs the user when the allowable bearing pressure is exceeded, the maximum value in each beam can be known.

Bear in mind that changing the value of the allowable bearing pressure does not affect the analysis of the structure (unlike the subgrade modulus), the program simply runs through a check to ensure the bearing pressure transmitted to the soil is less than the allowable bearing pressure, and emits a warning if greater.
