Sheet Piles Design Software -  DeepEX

DeepEX is the premier software program for sheet pile design. Now, this is a bold statement but please spend a few minutes with us you will find out why!

DeepEX has built in all standard pile sections. This can include in pipe piles, helical piles, steel beam piles, concrete walls, and bored piles. From the 2012 version DeepEX analyzes both lateral and axial pile capacity with well accepted methods. The versatily of DeepEX also allows the calculation of different axial capacities when lateral confining stresses change due to lateral movement.

In terms of analysis, DeepEX is a complete package! It offers both limit-equilibrium analysis methods and non-linear analysis options. What sets DeepEX apart is that it enables you to follow all construction stages, include 3D loads, include additional wall elements etc. You can vary the pile section with depth, and include separate stages to consider different loading scenarios.

DeepEX is the only sheet pile design software program that allows you to include two opposite walls! You can brace the two walls with slabs. With this the vertical load from the slabs can be transferred automatically to the walls.

Now DeepEX is a little more expensive than other software but when you compare apples with apples other sheet pile design software programs feel like Yugos while DeepEX is like driving a Cadillac or a  Mercedes!

Actual words of a US customer: This program is like driving a super charged Cadillac!

DeepXcav incorporates steel structural codes from US standards AISC ASD and LRFD, as well as European standards from EC3. The software can also automatically generate all loading cases for Eurocode 7 and AASHTO LRFD 2010 (5th edition). Hence, DeepXcav automatically generates all critical combinations for tension and compression loadings while the pile type construction is recognized.

But beyond pile design, DeepEX is much more: It is a full program that allows you to design soldier pile walls, secant pile walls, diaphragm walls, slope stability, soil nailing and more! Review DeepEX Capabilities

Sheet pile wall design with DeepEX - Deep Excavation software!

DeepEX our leading software program for deep excavations is ideal for designing sheet pile walls. All standard sheet pile sections are included within the program. DeepEX. DeepEX can evaluate regular sheet piles as well as more complex cofferdam sheet pile walls.

One of the first steps in the sheet pile wall analysis is to determine the wall displacements, bending moments, and support reactions. Once bending moments are determined, the pile can be resized from the original analysis to meet the required performance criteria. The following image presents a double cofferdam wall analyzed with the DeepEX software program:

Once the bracing linear forces are determined from our main analysis, a full frame analysis can be performed. With our DeepEX software since both capabilities are connected, we were able to prepare the model below and optimize all steel sections in less than 5 minutes.
