ATCx DEM 2020

Altair Technology Conference on the Discrete Element Method - ATCx DEM 2020

Enter the world of granular material simulation! This virtual conference covers the applications of the Discrete Element Method (DEM) and Altair EDEM software in a range of industries, from heavy equipment and off-road to mining, steelmaking, and process manufacturing. Hear from industry leaders and academic experts worldwide on how they use DEM technology to optimize equipment and processes.

Below is a collection of presentations from the ATCx DEM Virtual Event that took place in November 2020.

Keynote Speaker

DEM modeling of particulate processes – from conceptualization to industrial application
Prof. Jin Ooi
The University of Edinburgh

Professor Jin Ooi holds the Chair of Particulate Solid Mechanics at the University of Edinburgh, UK. His research interests include mechanics and behavior of granular solids as well as handling and characterization of solids and powders. Prof. Ooi is a well-known figure in the DEM community and an expert in the field, having published more than 150 papers related to particulate solid mechanics and delivered many keynote lectures around the world.
