Gravity Walls and Pile Supported Abutments

Gravity Walls and Pile Supported Abutments

With the Gravity Walls and Pile supported abutments optional module, you can design any gravity retaining wall in the most effective way! 

DeepEX offers the possibility to use a gravity retaining wall. User has the flexibility to create basic types of retaining walls such as full gravity or with stem. DeepEX calculates the sliding and overturning safety factors of the diaphragm wall. Flexural, reinforcement can be included where ever desired. A gravity wall can also be used as a pier or an abutment wall with piles.

Gravity walls dialog in DeepEX

In DeepEX, we can select to add piles (fixed to a pile cap or not), define the pile position (X and Y coordinates) and select to edit the pile structural section. The pile sections can be of any type or shape (reinforced concrete, steel sections, timber piles, plain concrete). DeepEX distributes the reaction on the pile head to each pile depending on the pile position and performs all pile design calculations.

The Gravity Walls and Pile Supported Abutments module can be added in any DeepEX Version
