Excavation Analysis

Analyse the forces acting on an excavation & import supplier technical data into your design.

In accordance with Eurocode 7. Only considers long term drained conditions & water at ground level.
Your Excavation Profile
1. Modify the soil parameters
2. Control Excavation profile
Enter the structural details of your excavation.
Strut 1 depth m
Check that soil is deep enough, base cannot be deaper than toe, max depth of 30m.
Strut 2 depth m
Check that soil is deep enough, base cannot be deaper than toe, max depth of 30m.
Strut 3 depth m
Check that soil is deep enough, base cannot be deaper than toe, max depth of 30m.
Base depth m
Check that soil is deep enough, base cannot be deaper than toe, max depth of 30m.
Pile toe depth m
Max depth of 30m & check that soil is deep enough.
Advanced options
Include a surcharge alongside the wall

Enter a number between 0 and 150.
Manual overwrite wall properties
Steel yield strength N/mm2
Youngs Modulus E GPa
Enter a number between 0 and 750.
