Dynamic Simulation

Beck Engineering simulates the cumulative effects of repeated dynamic loading by blasts, seismic events and earthquakes on stability, damage and deformation of built structures and excavations. We use 3d, strain softening geological models, incorporating built structures, discontinuities, ground reinforcement, and high resolution  geology models to simulate the effects of measured or synthetic strong ground motions.

Our multi-scale, high resolution approach focuses on spectral similitude – matching the expected energy contained across a broad range of frequencies. Coupled with the best of discontinuum and continuum approaches this represents best feasible analysis for these class of problems.
