The DC-Underpinning program includes the calculation of building underpinnings and gravity walls. Any unit of underpinning with several layers of anchors and stiffeners can be entered. For the unit of underpinning strengthened soil or concrete can be selected. Optionally, the wall width and the anchor forces can be optimised.

The DC-Integra program offers a solution for BIM in foundation engineering and provides an overview from the design phase to the processing of individual sections as well as the presentation of the results. The construction pit is displayed as a drawing (2-D) and in a 3-D view. In addition, the program offers interfaces to individual calculation programs to directly transfer the information from DC-Integra to these programs. Individual post-processing operations (e. g. definition of the excavations) can be performed in the calculation programs and the calculations can be done there.
The add-on option DC-Integra/3D enables a complete 3-D representation of an excavation pit.

Anchors can be defined by their depth, length and inclination, grouted anchor bodies by their length and diameter. Furthermore, it can be checked whether anchors collide with other anchors or with utility lines/pipework or buildings. The permissible spacing can be set freely.
The DC-Pile program can be used to design individual piles such as bored piles, driven/displacement piles, micro/grouted piles and ductile piles. The piles can be calculated as compression piles and tension piles. For the soil layers, the characteristic parameters such as the skin friction, the peak pressure and the stiffness or the subgrade modulus (for the foundation) have to be defined. For the peak pressure and the skin friction, the characteristic values specified by DIN 1054, ÖNORM B 1997 and the Recommendations of the German Pile Work Group EA-Pfähle are stored in the program.
