EDEM Applications for Steelmaking

Bulk materials such as iron ore, coal, pellets and sinter are at the core of the steelmaking process. From transporting raw materials from the mines to the plant by wagons, moving materials on conveyor belts to the blast furnace and the actual charging of the furnace, efficient handling and processing of those materials is critical to achieve efficiency. 

Typical challenges linked to bulk materials handling include spillage, blockage and wear as well as material segregation. Understanding the solid burden flow and the formation of the cohesive zone in the blast furnace is also critical to ensure performance and stability.

EDEM bulk material simulation technology can be used to optimize a range of operations and processes as part of the steelmaking process. Learn how it can help improve steel quality, energy efficiency and blast furnace performance.

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.
