Strip Surcharges

Strip Surcharges - Distributed Loads

Strip loads in DeepEX can be defined with linearly varying magnitudes in both vertical and horizontal directions. Hence, complicated surcharge patterns can be simulated. Surcharge pressures are calculated by dividing the strip load into increments where an equivalent line load is considered. Then the line load solutions are employed and numerically integrated to give the total surcharge at the desired elevation. The software subdivides each strip load into 50 increments where it performs the integration of both horizontal and vertical loads. On surface loads, the vertical load is calculated from integration along x and not along the surface line.
