Case Studies & Software Verification

Excavation & Foundation Design Case Studies

Practice and experience are invaluable in deep excavations. Deep Excavation has been involved in deep excavation research and design. The following articles contain information about representative deep excavation and pile foundation case studies from several locations worldwide (Taiwan, Abu Dhabi, Seattle, Boston, Chicago, Washington DC and more). A number of these projects has been redesigned - evaluated with our programs. The project database is frequently updated to include new cases and more information.
