COWI UK Limited uises appropriate software as part of the design process.

A suite of proprietary software is available to staff who have the support of experienced senior engineers to guide and supervise its use. From simple slope stability, or retaining wall design through to complex 3D soil-structure interaction analysis, we have the appropriate software, skills and experience to assess all types of problems.

Modelling expertise

We specialise in tunnels, shafts and chambers in soil and rock.  We use models to determine in-situ stress fields, deflections and support requirements.  Our expertise embraces all types of tunnels particularly tunnelling under jointed rock, weak rock, squeezing ground conditions and dense urban environments.

Proprietary and bespoke software 

We have in-depth experience of geotechnical applications for modelling tunnels, excavations, foundations, retaining walls and slopes, making full use of ZSoil 2D & 3D, Plaxis 2D & 3D, Udec, RS2, Slope W, Seep W, Dips, Unwedge, Wallap and Repute as appropriate. In addition, our engineers have developed in-house models, fully tested and approved by Chartered Engineers.
