DeepEX has been the ultimate software solution for the design of deep excavation projects for years! We proudly announce that our latest package allows us to model entire cities and tunneling projects, offering a complete solution for metro design challenges! Now you can bring in your whole city map with all buildings and surface elevations from Google, perform transportation analysis and place your ideal station locations in the city map automatically, create fast your tunnel alignments, analyze and optimize the whole model, and review the expected damages and repair costs for each building affected by your tunnel line with a click of a single button!


With DeepEX 3D City, you can model an entire metro line in as little as a couple of HOURS!


DeepEX 3D City is our most complete package, including all available modules of our DeepEX software! Now, you can design both 2D cut sections and full 3D models of any excavation project. You can also analyze any common wall/support system with the classical Limit Equilibrium Method, the Non-Linear Analysis with Soil Springs (Beam on Elastoplastic Foundations Approach), and the Finite Element Analysis approach! Design tunnels, including all construction stages, and perform transportation analysis which helps you locate the optimum station locations, estimate your tunneling costs and benefits, and perform a damage assessment in your city—calculating the repair costs for all City buildings affected by your tunnel line and more!


Are you designing transport or utility tunnels? With the DeepEX 3D City package, you can design any tunnel type, from cut-and-cover tunnels to more composite tunnel sections, tunnels constructed with the Tunnel Boring Machine Method (TBM Tunnels) or the Sequential Excavation Method (SEM - NATM Tunnels) considering full soil structure interaction! Now you can simulate all your tunnel and utility lines and monitor the impact of your deep excavation projects.

Do you need to have full structural checks of your tunnel lining?

Save time as DeepEX calculates the structural capacity of a wide variety of tunnel lining sections. All sections can be analyzed for combined axial and bending moment loads, from concrete, and corrugated sheets, to steel ribs. Wizards allow you to quickly model typical tunneling arrangements with or without rock bolting

Do you wish to design your full deep excavation project in a single software file?

With the DeepEX 3D package, you can generate any deep excavation perimeter and design the whole excavation model with a click, including all construction stages. Any model can be created in seconds with the software Wizards. The user can review all analysis results, project cost estimation, structural checks, steel connection checks, and more in tables and graphically on the model area. Impress your clients and discover construction challenges with 3D Model Visualization.

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 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!

What is the best location for a station within a Metro route?

With the DeepEX 3D City package, you can perform a planning-level transportation analysis for your city and the new proposed subway system. The software can implement basic or detailed route analysis for each city building and estimate travel distances to the nearest stations. This way, transportation level improvements can be quantified in estimating how many potential people are served in 5 min, 10min, etc., walking distance intervals.


 

Transportation Analysis Capabilities

Calculate the number of people each building may have on each occasion

Review the individual route from each building to the station with graphical visuality

Review the time each route requires

Review an approximation of the people each station can serve at any given time

How can we estimate the tunneling project cost and benefits?

Estimating a route's cost and benefits can be highly challenging at a planning level. DeepEX simplifies the process by providing cost estimation procedures for the station and tunneling works based on established research works and real tunneling experience. The cost estimates can range from preliminary to quite detailed, including the potential cost of deformation damage induced on existing structures.


 

Cost & Benefit Analysis Capabilities

Planning level cost estimate for tunneling and station works

Tunneling cost estimates can be associated to geological conditions

Detailed cost estimates for excavation works

Estimate of potential building damage and utility costs

Cost-benefit analysis

How long does it take you to search and apply all existing buildings in your design? What about utilities?

With the DeepEX 3D package, you can import all existing structures, surface elevations, utilities, and more directly into the model area with a click of a button! All building maps and elevations can be directly imported from Google or CadMapper, and city utilities can be imported from QGIS! Save time and effort in your preliminary metro route designs and be competitive.

Do you need to assess the impact of the tunnel construction on the adjacent buildings?

With the DeepEX 3D City package, you can automatically generate 2D Cut Sections along the tunnel and utility lines at regular intervals. DeepEX can estimate ground movements from consolidation, dewatering, and soil loss caused by tunnel construction and deep excavations. With DeepEX, you can perform damage assessments on all city structures affected by the tunnel line and estimate repair costs.

Do you wish to back-check your deep excavation design based on monitoring data during the construction?

With the DeepEX 3D City package, you can import data from our SiteMaster software inclinometers and connect load cells and strain gages. You can perform live structural and geotechnical checks on anchors, walers, and struts, examine structures against predetermined displacement limits and display graphs in 2D sections and plan view.
