StruBIM Box culverts is a program developed for the design and analysis of reinforced concrete box culverts used for underpasses, subways, and drainage works.
The program can also design culverts made up of various aligned prestressed elements by defining the joints or those to be executed on site.
Can be rectangular, trapezoidal or any type of polygon designed on screen, as well as being single cell or multiple cell elements
Trolley loads can be introduced (vast vehicle load library) at any position, graphically indicating their axis path and the distance between the sequential load acting positions
Strip loads or surface loads on slabs, etc. may also be introduced.
The analysis model used is composed of a thick triangular finite element mesh, which considers shear deformation.
3D views of the force and displacement contour diagrams and the deformed imaged for any loadcase
Designs and checks all the elements of the culvert: top and bottom slabs, intermediate cell walls, lateral walls and wingwalls (wall and footing), providing all their reinforcement
Reports and drawings of all the data introduced, the analysis results, detailing of reinforcement and materials measurements

Soil retention elements
Analysis, check and design of reinforced concrete elements comprising embedded retaining walls and cantilever retaining walls.
Reinforced concrete cantilever walls: Program designed for the design and check of reinforced concrete cantilever soil retaining walls. Provides the automatic optimum design of the geometry, calculates the section reinforcement and carries out the geometric and reinforcement design of the foundation.
Embedded retaining walls: This has been developed for the design and check of generic embedded retaining walls composed of any material; reinforced concrete, reinforced concrete secant pile walls, mini pile screen and steel sheet piles. The program designs the reinforcement in the case of reinforced concrete walls. An assistant is available to help introduce the data for the most common cases of several basements levels in buildings. A simple assistant is also available for buildings with one or two basement levels.
