If you are in the deep excavation industry you are aware of all the challenges that must be addressed. Deep excavation design can be a risky business if you don't take care of the details. From selecting the wall type and bracing, estimating soil properties and building loads, to design and analysis methods, the number of design challenges that must be met are many. That is why we created DeepEX, a software program that tackles all these deep excavation challenges in an efficient and complete manner.

Back in the day it would take our CEO one week to complete the design of one deep excavation section. Now, with DeepEX the same design can be completed in 30 minutes or less.

We are passionate deep excavations and about helping you succeed.

Join us for a web meeting and we can show you how to save design time, and learn tips and tricks that could save you millions.

DeepEX is an innovative, easy to use, software program for deep excavations, developed by experts for engineers like you.  It solves both geotechnical and structural designs 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 accumulates a long international experience of geotechnical and structural experience in deep excavation design and software development with more than 3000 users worldwide. Engineers in the US, Singapore, Australia,  India, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Malaysia, and other countries use DeepEX as their preferred tool for deep excavation design.

   2D AND 3D DESIGN - CUSTOMIZABLE VERSIONS   

Meed additional design challenges with additional DeepEX modules. Not all deep excavations require the same capabilities. You can expand your solution capabilities with the following DeepEX versions/modules:

DeepEX 2D: For the design and optimization of all project 2D design sections.

DeepEX 3D: Export the 3D Frame model with all bracing levels, so that the full project with all supports can be calculated. With DeepEX 3D we can also perform total cost estimation for the full project.

Additional modules can be added in any of the main DeepEX versions (2D and 3D), increasing the software capabilities:

  • Export Drawings to DXF module:  With this module all 2D sections for all construction stages and wall sections can be exported to DXF and opened in any CAD software. In DeepEX 3D, the same feature can be used for the export of the full project plan and side views.
  • Steel-Connection module: Allows you to easily generate all steel connections for walers to struts, and corner walers. Once a design is complete the steel connections can be optimized with a click of the button. The program will then automatically adjust weld sizes and apply plate stiffeners if required. Steel-connections can be evaluated with AISC 360-16 allowable or LRFD.
  • Export 3D Model & Holograms module:  This module allows your the export the deep excavation  model to a 3D desktop, virtual reality, or augmented reality (HoloLens) model. Easily visualize the 3D model excavation before it is constructed and communicate with your clients some of the complexities and construction staging. This way check for any potential construction challenges (adjacent building foundations, underground utilities etc.), as well as, impress the clients with the view of the final project before it is constructed. The module allows importing 3D buildings back into the design environment.
  • Finite Element Analysis module: DeepFEM, can be added and activated with in any software version, allowing the Finite Element Analysis method to be performed. The FEM method considers full soil structure interaction and can be used to analyze complicated models, adjacent foundation piles, tunnels and more.

Each module can solve additional design challenges!
