What numbers should I put in? The perennial question for DEM users
One of the key challenges of DEM simulation is to ensure that the simulated material behavior reflects the real material behavior. In this post we discuss the difficulty of getting material inputs and the role of calibration.
It’s about time
Our customers use EDEM to design equipment and solve problems. Typically, answers are required ‘now’ or ‘yesterday’. In this post we discuss the importance of initial time planning and the factors that impact simulation run time.
Behind the scenes – How EDEM was used to create our Holiday Video
Having some fun with EDEM…In this post you’ll find out how the DEM Solutions holiday video was done. Sleigh, snowflakes and gifts…our engineer explains how they were created in EDEM.
DEM Pro-Tip: Don’t believe the hype! Why you don’t need high-fidelity particle shapes…
Shape is a topic that is of great interest in the DEM community and there are a couple of methods vying for the attentions of users: the multi-sphere approach that uses clumped spheres, and a polyhedral approach that uses angular shapes.
Announcing the Winners of EDEM Visualization Contest 2014
We're delighted to reveal the winner entries for this year's contest. Watch videos of the most remarkable simulations submitted by academic and industry users of EDEM.
DEM Pro-Tip: If it doesn’t have shape, then it’s probably wrong
At the heart of any industrial DEM simulation is the mathematical representation of a real bulk material, which is also termed the ‘Material Model’. There are lots of aspects to a material model and a crucial one is the shape of the particles used.
3 months in the life of an Engineering Intern
EDEM and the University of Edinburgh formed a partnership involving the creation of summer internship positions for Engineering Masters students. Meet the first two students to benefit from this initiative and find out about their experience!
