Designing agricultural machinery using EDEM bulk material simulation

Agricultural machinery such as tractors, combines and forage harvesters are all designed to work with a range of bulk materials such as crops, seeds and soils. These materials can impact the performance of the machine and its durability. Typical issues might include blockage of fibres in harvesting equipment, wear of tools, uneven distribution of seeds and inefficient processes.

Predicting the behavior of materials and their impact on the machine is therefore critical to achieve efficiency and performance. EDEM software is capable of simulating and analyzing the behavior of grains, seeds, crops and soils and it can be used for the design, performance testing and optimization of agricultural equipment.

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, tablet, 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.

Since November 2019, EDEM has been part of Altair.
