Shaft Sinking and Shaft Deformation

Simulated shaft deflection from a 3D mine scale discontinuum model measured along the shaft wall

BE specialises in shaft deformation management. We work with mines across the globe that have highly deformed shafts  to plan extraction and maintain their shafts.

We provide:

  • reliable, accurate, realistic deformation forecasting with multi-scale discontinuum finite element simulations
  • probabilistic forecasting of deformation and damage
  • shaft remediation advice
