DeepEX 3D Package

Design & Analyze 2D & 3D Excavation Models!

With our DeepEX 3D Package you can:

Design 2D cut sections of any deep excavation model

Define all common wall types: Soldier piles, secant/tanglent piles, sheet piles, diaphragms +more

Define all common support systems: Cantilever excavations, cofferdams, anchored walls, deadman systems, slabs, internal bracing (struts and rakers), circular shafts +more

Analyze deep excavations with the classical Limit Equilibrium approach

Analyze deep excavations with the Non-Linear analysis method (elastoplastic Winkler springs)

Analyze deep excavations with the Finite Element Analysis method (2D FEM)

Perform full structural capacity calculations and review structural checks for all walls and supports

Perform slope stability analysis

Estimate soil properties & perform statistical analysis

Export all 2D section, wall section details and project plan view sketches to DXF

Export detailed reports with equations to PDF and MS Word formats

Design and analyze tunnels (TBM, NATM, HDD pipes)

Define and design tunnel linings

Generate, analyze and optimize full 3D frame models

✓ Review Cost Estimation Report

✓ Check and Optimize all Steel Connections

✓ Import City Map from Google

✓ Import all Buildings from Google

✓ Automatically generate 2D Cut Sections

✓ Export 3D Model Holograms

✓ Perform damage assessments on adjacent buildings, calculating strains, crack widths, damage categories and more for all building walls

DeepEX 3D is a complete deep excavation design package of our DeepEX software! 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, estimate the project cost, check steel connections, export model holograms, perform damage assessment on buildings adjacent to your excavation site and more!

Soil Properties can be estimated from SPT with many methods. The software performs and presents a statistical analysis of the estimated properties, so you can have a high value of certainty when you select which properties to apply! DeepEX 3D Plus can export detailed and customizable reports to PDF and MS Word with all equations and 2D sections, 3D model plan view, and wall elevation views to DXF files, accessible by any CAD software!

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!

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.

Are you worried about the impact of your metro station's excavation on adjacent buildings?

With the DeepEX 3D package, you can perform a damage assessment on any building adjacent to your excavation site. The software can estimate the settlements below the building and calculate critical strains, crack widths, angular distortions, and damage categories for each structure wall.

Do you wish to see what you design in real-life space?

With DeepEX 3D, you can export the full 3D-generated model hologram. View the designed model with all construction stages on your desktop or with AR and VR headsets, navigate inside the project with voice commands, locate potential issues and conflicts, and impress your clients!
