Design & Analyze 2D Excavation Models!
DeepEX 2D is the basic version of our shoring design software, DeepEX. With DeepEX 2D, you can analyze any common wall type and support system with the classical Limit Equilibrium Method and the Non-Linear Analysis with Soil Springs (Beam on Elastoplastic Foundations Approach). DeepEX 2D allows you to generate any deep excavation model in minutes, including all construction stages, analyze the model, perform structural checks on all structural members, perform slope stability analysis, and more. DeepEX can export detailed and customizable reports with all equations to PDF and MS Word!
The version can be enhanced with powerful optional modules that can greatly expand the software capabilities!
Optional Modules: Finite Element Analysis, Building Damage Assessment, Gravity Walls/Pile Abutments/Sea Walls/MSE Walls &more
Are you designing cofferdams? What about anchored walls? And when it comes to deadman systems?
DeepEX software has been the tool of choice for engineers and contractors worldwide, from cantilever walls to multi-braced excavations. Within the software's superior, interactive interface, you can simulate any deep excavation wall type (soldier piles, secant piles, tangent piles, sheet piles, diaphragm walls, and more) and generate all construction stages, supporting the wall with any possible support system. You can now design, analyze, optimize, and report any challenging deep excavation project type within minutes!

Do I need separate software for my structural checks?
DeepEX can perform structural design on all structural members (supports and walls)! Now, you can have a full structural and geotechnical design of your deep excavation project in a single software suite in compliance with both structural and geotechnical standards (US, Canadian, European, Australian, Indian, and Chinese codes are implemented into the program). The software calculates the wall moment and shear capacities, the support structural and geotechnical capacities, and more. All equations can be reviewed and can be included in the printed reports!

And what about slope stability analysis?
DeepEX performs slope stability analyses according to several methods (Bishop, Morgenstern-Price, Spencer, Swedish methods) so that users do not have to export data to another package!
The software can locate the most critical slope surface from different methods (automatic non-circular surfaces, circular surfaces, circular surfaces with active/passive wedges, block-type failure, and more.
DeepEX can also design soil nail walls as it incorporates the recommendations by the French Clouterre, AASHTO LRFD, and Eurocodes.
