DeepEX 2018 (DeepXcav 2018) Shoring design software

DeepEX is an innovative, easy to use, software program for deep excavations, developed by experts for engineers like you.  It can perform both geotechnical and structural design for many wall types that include soldier pile walls, sheet pile walls, and diaphragm walls with multiple sections of reinforcement. DeepEX can also perform slope stability analysis with soil nailing. It comes packed with all structural and geotechnical design codes. DeepEX is an upgrade to our DeepEX 2017, 2016, and DeepXcav 2012 versions.

DeepEX 2018 is the most recent version of our deep excavation software.  It offers an extensive range of capabilities. DeepEX accumulates a long international experience of geotechnical and structural experience in deep excavation design and software development with more than 1200 users worlwide. Engineers in the US, Signapore, Australia,  India, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Malaysia, and other countries use DeepEX as their preferred tool for deep excavation design.

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.

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 or elastoplastic methods. In the elastoplastic analysis, the soil is divided in active and passive non-linear soil springs. In the elastoplastic analysis, the lateral soil pressures depend on the soil properties and the proposed construction stage history.

Building Damage Assessmentt: 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.

Deep Excavation Types with DeepEX 2015 deep excavation software

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.

Learn deep excavation design, soldier pile walls, sheet piles, secant pile walls with DeepEX!

Get Started now with a free mentorship session with our software

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!
