BEM means Boundary Element Method. It is a numerical method somewhat
comparable to FEA (Finite Element Analysis). The major advantage of it
is that it does not require meshing the whole volume
of a body but its surface only. Unfortunately there are disadvantages
for nonlinear problems.

You can find more on this using the common Internet search engines...

Hopre this helps...
