ALLPlate2D - Plaxis 2D Post-processing Tool for Deep Excavation Design
ALLPlate2D is a post-processing tool to automatically extract the results from Plaxis 2D analysis and create charts and summary tables of retaining walls for deep excavation design.
Automatic extraction of Plaxis 2D analysis results
ALLPlate2D can automatically extract the Plaxis 2D analysis results for all the plate elements within the model and present the results in professional charts and tables which can be directly used in the design report or for the presentation. It is very useful for the analysis and design for various deep excavation problems where the retaining walls are modelled with plate elements.
Creating multiple plate elements for displaying deformation and structural force results
The extracted results will be stored in a single data file. Multiple plate elements (retaining walls) can be selected for displaying the deformation and structural force results. This makes it very easy for the users to view or present the results for different plate elements if multiple retaining walls (vertical plate elements) are included in the model.
Plaxis 2D result plots for the selected analysis stages
ALLPlate2D will generate the chart for the results of displacement, bending moment, shear force and axial force for the selected analysis stages. The users can decide to include or exclude any analysis stages for the result plot. This feature is very useful for comparing the results among different stages.
Define the load factor and spacing factor for Plaxis 2D results
The load factor and spacing factor can be defined by the users for the selected stages. The load factor can be adopted as per the requirements in the design standards. The spacing factor can be defined for soldier piled walls, contiguous bored pile wall, secant pile wall or diaphragm wall. Therefore, the results from Plaxis 2D (per meter run) can be multiplied by the load factor and spacing factor to get the actual design actions for structural capacity design.
