CRUX Engineering MicroServices – CEMS - is a starting IT company powered by CRUX and exposes geotechnical software as service through REST api’s. These endpoints can be used as a trusted component in scalable automated engineering processes.
The geotechnical consultancy world is lagging behind in the use of digital tools. In geotechnics, software user interfaces have hardly undergone any development in the last 20 years. Today’s computing power and storage capacity is unlimited for Geo-Engineering applications.
In order to unlock these possibilities in our work, we need to acquire programming skills and be able to apply them in automated design processes. Mastering these skills will offer the opportunity to integrate Data Science and Artificial Intelligence in our daily work.
The objective of CEMS is to make fully use of digital technologies, starting from our domain knowledge of underground engineering.

Introducing CEMS by Jacco Haasnoot
PileCore is a python library that aims to give you the full pile calculation utilities without an engineer in the loop. This means that calculations must be able to run from start to finish from a set of given parameters. Pilecore is able to determine the tipping point between positive and negative friction and will optimize pile groups automatically.
VibraCore is an API service based on a Python library that automates the risk management of building damage during vibration works, such as the installation of sheet piles or driven piles. Based on the soil profile (GEF file) the maximum impact force is calculated (according to CUR 166) or the elastic modulus of the soil is determined (according to Prepal). This is used to predict the maximum vibration velocity. Based on the attributes of the nearby buildings the failure vibration velocity is calculated (according to SBR A). If the check fails the building has a unacceptable risk (according to SBR A) of being damaged by the installation of the piles or sheet piles.
