Adding realistic loads in

LMS Virtual.Lab Motion

with bulk material simulation



Multi-body dynamics tools such as LMS Virtual.Lab Motion from Siemens PLM Software are often used in the design of heavy equipment such as excavators, ploughs and dozers. In order for engineers to get confidence in the structural durability and the design performance it is critical to get an accurate representation of the loads acting on a system.

In this webinar, we will look at the challenges of designing heavy equipment and discuss traditional approaches to obtaining material loads as well as their limitations. We will introduce an alternative using bulk material simulation technology and provide an overview of ‘EDEM for LMS Virtual.Lab Motion’ - a tool that enables engineers to include realistic material loads directly and easily in their multi-body solution.

EDEM is the market-leading software for bulk material simulation.

Powered by state-of-the-art Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) technology, EDEM quickly and accurately simulates and analyzes the behavior of bulk materials such as coal, mined ores, soil, tablets, and powders.

EDEM simulation provides engineers with crucial insight into how bulk materials will interact with their equipment during a range of operation and process conditions.
