A pile design solution which is ideal for drilled shafts or caisson type foundations.
Shaft3D is our pile design solution which is ideal for drilled shafts or caisson type foundations. Completing shaft axial capacity analysis, lateral analysis and concrete design, all in one integrated environment, has never been easier.
Whether you are designing caisson foundations for windmills, transmission lines, utility lines or any other structure requiring drilled pier foundations,Shaft3D will help you complete your projects in minutes. With its Windows-based, easy-to-learn graphical interface and its ability to provide a complete solution covering various types of analyses, Shaft3D will help you increase your productivity significantly.
International Design Codes
Supports many concrete design codes to help complete your global projects
User Defined Parameters
Provides many design options such as shaft boundary conditions, choice of safety factors in end bearing, skin friction and pullout, selection of axial capacity methods and many others to help meet various types of project specifications
Graphical Input of Soil Profile
Allows input of unlimited number of soil layers, each with many unique set of soil properties graphically allowing you to visualize your soil profile
Soil Property Values
Provides a range of values of soil properties such as cohesion, angle of internal friction with selection of the soil type allowing you to complete a preliminary design without detailed soil report
Load Cases and Combinations
Generates commonly used load cases and combinations for shaft design saving you significant design time
Completes axial capacity analysis, lateral analysis and concrete design in one integrated environment, saving you the cost of learning multiple software solutions
Axial Capacity Methods
