GEO5 : Excavation Design

Design and verification of retaining structures, diaphragm and pile walls

GEO5 enables a complete design and analysis of vertical sheeting structure of many types. Retaining walls can be anchored, strutted or non-anchored, it is possible to compute soldier piles.

Programs for Shoring Excavation and Retaining Wall Design

The GEO5 Sheeting Check program is used to make advanced design of anchored or strutted retaining walls (Sheet pile, Diaphragm, Pile or Soldier pile walls). It allows the user to model the real structure behavior using stages of construction, to calculate the deformation and pressures acting upon the structure, to verify the internal anchor stability or to verify steel, RC, vinyl or timber cross-sections and the bearing capacity of the anchors.

The GEO5 Sheeting Design program is used to perform a quick design of non-anchored structures or a basic design of anchored structures. The program calculates the required length of the structure in soil, the internal forces on the structure and verifies cross-sections (RC, steel, vinyl, timber).

Both programs support design of variety embedded retaining wall types (Sheet pile wall, Diaphragm wall, Soldier pile wall and Pile wall).

Also both programs allow analyzing overall stability using the GEO5 Slope Stability program.
