Delve Underground’s Computational Engineering and Analysis team includes highly trained numerical modeling specialists who are among the leading experts in their field. This team uses state-of-the-art, cutting-edge modeling knowledge and techniques to develop innovative and cost-effective solutions for complex underground structures. These solutions are developed aiming for design optimization, construction risk mitigation, and added reliability.

Our soil-structure interaction (SSI) modeling capabilities include two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) analyses for complex linear and nonlinear, static, and time-dependent problems. Our typical array of modeling services includes:

  • Design and analysis for construction sequence and excavation methods
  • Design of support for deep excavations (temporary and permanent)
  • Seismic response of structures (pseudo-static and dynamic SSI analyses)
  • Structural design and analysis for temporary and permanent structures
  • Assessment of impacts of underground construction or future developments on adjacent existing structures
  • Groundwater flow and coupled fluid-mechanical interaction analysis
  • Thermal and coupled thermal-mechanical analysis
