DC-Software products



The DC-Dewatering program can be used to calculate groundwater lowering with multi-well installations. The calculation can be performed for the lowering of groundwater in several adjacent excavation pits of different depths with any number of wells and in a staggered arrangement.

DC-Dewatering special approaches

Showing dewatering analysis with waterproof enclosure, tight base and vacuum wells


  • Any number of excavation pits can be defined with different shapes and depths
  • Optional waterproof enclosure and waterproof invert
  • Selection of various well systems: vertical or horizontal wells, vacuum or gravity wells, open dewatering
  • Any number of wells with different diameters, depths and lowering aims
  • A staggered arrangement of the wells is possible
  • Optional automatic arrangement of wells with predefined diameters, depths and distances from the edge of the excavation pit (optimisation of the well location and depth)
  • Horizontal soil stratification with different permeabilities
  • Free, semi-confined or confined groundwater, optionally with a fixed water level from a nearby water body
  • Lowering depth either predefined or adapted to the excavation depth
  • Calculation and indication of the required pump water quantity, capacity, lowering and wetted filter height per well
  • Calculation of the decisive point for the lowering
  • Calculation of the required number of wells
  • Calculation of the extent according to Sichardt, according to Weyrauch, according to Weber or time-dependent
  • Consideration of the influence of the wells on each other depending on their spacing
  • Calculation of the residual flows from the wall and the invert as well as the inflows from precipitation for the trough construction
  • Representation of the lowering via contour lines or coloured areas
  • Representation of the water level along any section line
  • The lowering can be displayed at any point in the user interface
  • For the accurate internal modelling of the excavation pit dimensions, it is possible to import DXF graphics as a background.
  • Output options: printer, PDF
  • Interfaces: RTF export to MS Word, graphic export in JPG format, DXF export
