Geotechnical software company, Deep Excavation, LLC has just announced a new software product for design of deep foundations. The product page for DeepFND notes that it brings together geotechnical design and structural design of deep foundations in one complete package. It includes both axial and lateral analysis of a variety of deep foundations, including drilled shafts, driven piles of various types, continuous flight auger piles (CFA Piles), micropiles, and even helical piles (if you opt for the premium version). Something quite unique is the fact that they have included the ability to interpret and process load test data. I look forward to taking advantage of the free trial to give this program a try. It is priced pretty reasonably, starting at $900 (US). [Source: Check out the DeepFND Page at Deep Excavation's website. Image: Courtesy of Deep Excavation, LLC]
