Type the value of the allowable stress rather than use the analytical method.

For the settings as on my picture the marked value will be used regardless of the soil profile you have defined in the Soils dialog.

I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. The stress limit in the soil should not change but the load due to the change of soil weight can.
