3D Frame Analysis

DeepEX 3D Frame analysis module can create, design and optimize any braced excavation or anchored walls 3D model in minutes!

Save time and money in your shoring design projects and gain a competitive edge!

3D Frame Analysis in DeepEX

The frame module enables you to design excavations supported by walers, struts and tiebacks. The 3D definitions consist of an external project perimeter and an excavation perimeter. A wall perimeter is typically assigned to the excavation perimeter, with the possibility of assigning a different wall section (relating to a design section) on each wall segment (between nodes). Walers are attached to wall segments, and different loads along the waler from different design sections can be defined. Once the walers are in place, struts can be drawn between walers and the excavation shoring can be analyzed. Based on your analysis results, DeepEX will pick up the load from each design section and figure out reactions and stress checks on walers and struts.

The frame module works better for box shaped excavations, additional modelling maybe required for re-entrant corners or special conditions. Some simplifying assumptions are made regarding how axial loads are distributed.

The Cost Estimation module is available in DeepEX 3D, 3D Plusand 3D Advanced Versions!
