Cores of Expertise

CEMS combines its geotechnical and geohydrological expertise with coding knowledge. We offer software as a service through APIs, also known as cores, and assist you to build scalable automated design processes. The Services we offer show that CEMS operates at the forefront of automated engineering.

Try user-friendly samples of our Cores on NUCLEI the public online environment of CEMS.

‘Sterke Lekdijk’

App to determine piping risk more accurately; A successful innovation!

‘De Nieuwe Meer’

The reconstruction of the the ‘De Nieuwe Meer’ junction is part of the Zuidasdok project, one of the largest infrastructural construction projects in the Netherlands.

Södertälje Canal Sweden

The widening of the Södertälje Canal in Sweden was executed by means of anchored sheet pile walls on both sides of the canal.

Automated dike assesment

Geohydrological analysis requires data to reduce risks, analyse time is reduced by 50% to 75%.


In this project, CEMS was involved in the 2nd opinion of the dewatering plan for the construction of the 37 foundations for the onshore wind turbines.

Automated sheet pile design N243

The assignment was to design the sheet pile wall along the road N243; length of approx. 15.4 kilometers. CEMS helped to optimize the design using GEOLIB.

Scalable Cores

Cores are the heart of our software products. These geotechnical and geohydrological microservices act as flexible kernels in your parametric workflow. Our Cores are cloud-based ensuring a scalable performance to quickly reach an optimal design. Just send your data to our API and get back results immediately, both in Json or pdf. Quality is guaranteed by the domain knowledge of our experts and documented in validation reports.

No code, no problem

With today's cloud-based computing power and storage capacity, the possibilities for geotechnical engineers are almost limitless. CEMS combines engineering and software knowledge to develop MicroServices and customised applications to automate the design process.

Current developments show that there is a clear distinction between the UI (User Interface) and the computational kernel or Core as we like to call it. CEMS focuses on providing a validated and reliable Core and lets you decide which UI you use. All options are available, click your way through an easily accessible UI, like we have in the samples on our NUCLEI platform, or use direct scripting with our Core when you are an advanced coder. Low coding options are also readily available. We have prepared lots of Jupyter Notebooks for you and many of our Cores are available in low coding platforms like Viktor, PackHunt and ParaPy.
