Making contact – Using EDEM API to write custom contact models
This is the first in a series of posts focusing on contact models and showing examples of how the EDEM Application Programming Interface (API) can be used to customize and write new models for specific applications and complex bulk material behavior.
From Graduate to Engineering Manager – an Engineer’s journey
We’re celebrating an important milestone for the EDEM technical team with Stephen Cole, Engineering Manager, reaching 10 years of service! We took this opportunity to have a chat with Stephen and reflect on his career and experience.
How-to: Modeling chains with particles
Following the results of the EDEM Visualization Contest, some of you have asked us how it is possible to model chains such as the ones shown in the log debarking video submitted by Andrew Hobbs. Well the answer is very simple: with particles!
Modelling geomaterials – new insight from our Intern
Our engineering intern reports on his work looking at using the Generic EDEM Material Model Database to model geomaterials such as sand, gravel, clay, etc. The example looked at consists of modelling the interaction between sand and a tillage tool.
Particle shear modulus – it can save you time
Particle Shear Modulus is one of the key parameters we can use to influence the time taken to run a simulation. Find out how reducing the Shear Modulus can result in faster simulations when used with caution.
