Non constant elastic coefficient for calculating slabs on grade

Quite long slabs on grade has irregular foundation pressure, thus they have to have irregularal elastic coefficient to calculate forces in slabs correctly.

Unfortunately, right now Robot has no capabilities to set non-constant elastic coefficient for the slabs.

in addition to that, there could be an automatic tool to assign different spring stiffenesses to dofferent parts of a slab depending on soil parameters, loads and slab stiffeness (simillar to CROSS addinn in SCAD)
