Arbitrary Shape Excavation - Modeling & 3D FEM Analysis

Model simulation and 3D Finite Element Analysis


Arbitrary shape excavation - 3D Finite Element analysis in DeepEX

This example aims to demonstrate the effortless generation of an arbitrary shape excavation with the tools of our DeepEX – Shoring and tunnel design software, and the analysis of the 3D model with the implemented 3D Finite Element Analysis engine. DeepEX, through its graphical interface and model wizards, is a great tool for the structural and geotechnical design of any deep excavation model and the evaluation of the retaining systems with various methods.


Our latest addition to the superior software suite, our 3D Finite Element Analysis engine guarantees to provide you valuable insights in your excavation system behavior, considering full soil-structure interactions. The advantage of our 3D FEM analysis is that the 3D FEM models can be automatically generated in seconds with a click of a button, and the user can make real-time adjustments to the actual generated model.


For this case we will generate the 2D section and the 3D model with the DeepEX model wizard, which allows us to define the desired 3D model perimeter, the soil properties and wall and support structural sections, and it can generate the models automatically including all construction stages.
