What does DeepEX do?

Deep excavation design: DeepEX helps you design deep excavations by offering the most comprehensive software in the world. Many clients have performed designs within 25% of the original time required time.

Statistical soil property estimation: Estimating soil properties and their variability can be particularly challenging. DeepEX solves this major geotechnical challenge by offering a robust framework for estimating soil properties with established correlations (Statistical soil estimation module).

Statistical soil property distribution

Cost estimation: DeepEX is now the only software that offers preliminary cost estimation and quantity take offs.

Slope stability: DeepEX also performs slope stability analyses so that you do not have to export data to another package, thus saving you time. Checkout below a slope stabilization analysis in Portland, Oregon, with reinforced concrete piles and ground anchors, during an extreme seismic event:

Analysis methods: DeepEX is the only software in its category that can analyze a wall with:

Limit Equilibrium methods: Established methods of analysis that have withstood the test of time.

Elastoplastic soil spring methods with active and passive soil springs

Finite element analysis methods: Model full soil-structure interaction that simulates full soil-structure-interaction.Finite element analysis of a deep excavation

Building Damage Assessment: DeepEX is the only software that can easily assess the damage potential of ajdacent buildings next to an excavation. DeepEX uses thorough methods to estimate potential crack widths and building settlement in three dimensions. The program then accesses for critial building elemens the damage potential as negligible, slight, moderate, severe, or very severe.

Design standards: DeepXcav implements a wide range of US and European design standards. These include: AISC, ACI, AASHTO, AS 3600, BS, BS 5950-2000, EC2, EC3, EC7, DIN, DM08, etc.

DeepEX Implements CALTRANS and WMATA standards with easy to use wizards.

Frame Analysis: DeepEX allows you to create the full frame of your deep excavation, and optimize all members within typically 5 minutes:

Export to DXF: DeepEX has a new module that allows you to export 80% drawings to DXF. You can export multiple stages and create stage sequencing diagrams. You can also export stages with result diagrams.

Stage sequencing exporting all stages to DXF

Pile Supported Abutments: Evaluate pile supported abutments with all pile types for lateral and vertical pile loads, and also examine their effects on an adjacent excavation.

DeepEX independent comparison against well known finite element software program for a 20m subway station (60ft depth).

DeepEX vs plaxis for a 20m subway station

FE program: 551 kN-m/m            DeepEX: Wall moment 545 kN-m/m

DeepEX vs plaxis for a 20m subway station with tiebacks

FE program: 669 kN-m/m                       DeepEX Wall moment 667 kN-m/m

Support reactions were within 10 to 20%.

Ok, so the results are similar, why DeepEX: DeepEX (DeepXcav) is a full design package. In contrast to traditional FE programs it is very easy change your model. In fact, you can generate an excavation model using the Wizard in fewer than 5 minutes. DeepXcav comes packed with tools that provide warnings and soil parameter estimates. Last, DeepEX is a dedicated tool for this purpose, it saves you time, and gives you a competitive edge!
