A. Project Description
This design example presents a case with a braced excavation system, supporting a 25ft excavation. Four soil layers are considered, and a 0.6 ksf surcharge is included at the top. The wall section is soldier piles (HP16x101 @ 8ft) with 2'' timber lagging. The wall is supported by 2 rows of rakers, that are both based on the same heelblock. The figure below presents the completed excavation model.
The analysis is performed with the Limit Equilibrium Analysis method.

C. Braced Soldier Pile Wall Analysis Results and Optimization
DeepEX can perform full structural and geotechnical design ot all project items (walls and supports). The calculated results (soil and water pressures, wall moment, shear and displacement diagrams, support reactions, structural and geotechnical check ratios and more) can be presented both in tables and graphically on the model area. DeepEX can analyze and present results for all construction stages, allowing the designer to review the full project history and take important descisions for the most efficient model optimization.
The following images present some of the calculated graphs.
