Applications of the discret element method (DEM) in industry using Altair® EDEM™

In this workshop you will learn how EDEM can be used by engineers in a variety of industries for virtual testing. And, of course, how you can gain critical insights into the interaction of materials and plant during a range of operating and process conditions.

The Discrete Element Method (DEM) is a discrete matter simulation method that captures the dual nature of fluid and solid properties of granular material flow.

Bulk materials are complex in their behavior and this poses challenges for engineers, as granular materials often have a significant impact on the performance of a device or the efficiency of a process. Simulation-based design earlier in the design cycle can reduce the amount of prototype testing, cost and time, and deliver an improved design.
