DeepXcav

is

a

software

program

for

braced

excavations

in

soils

with

2
D

limit
-
equilibrium

and

non
-
linear

analysis

methods,

and

structural

verification

of

all

elements

(with

AISC,

ASD,

Eurocodes)
.


It

offers

the

ability

to

analyze

walls

with

multiple

braces

(tiebacks)

in

multilayered

soils
.

The

non
-
linear

analysis

considers

elastoplastic

behavior

for

the

whole

soil
-
wall
-
support

system
.

The

program

also

offers

the

ability

to

perform

traditional

limit
-
equilibrium

analyses
.


The

graphical

interface

is

completely

interactive

and

the

input

is

simplified

to

a

great

extend
.


The

program

utilizes

archives

of

wall

types,

structural

and

soil

materials,

ground

anchors

etc
.

The

analysis

can

be

performed

in

either

an

utlimate

state

or

at

a

service

state

(allowable

design

or

LRFD)
.


The

program

offers

the

ability

to

automatically

set

all

critical

settings

according

to

the

desired

design

methodology
.

The

program

also

offers

the

ability

to

perform

slope

stability

analyses

with

soil

nails
.
