Beck Engineering is dedicating a significant amount of its resources in the fields of rock mechanics research and numerical simulation methods for the mining and oil&gas industry. Our team pioneered complex non-linear finite element modelling for the mining industry 15 years ago and we are continuing to innovate in this field. We apply realistic physics-based simulation methods to forecast the geotechnical performance of underground and open pit mines across a broad range of mining methods, geotechnical conditions and commodities. Please find below a collection of current research topics and a selection of papers from our extensive library of research publications.
