EDEM software is made of 3 core components: EDEM Creator, Simulator and Analyst.

EDEM Creator

EDEM Creator is the pre-processor for setting up an EDEM simulation model.

  • Setup simulations in a fast, logical manner with EDEM’s intuitive and user friendly interface
  • Import equipment geometry from a wide range of CAD files (IGES, STL, STEP and more)
  • Assign equipment motion (linear, rotational, sinusoidal, force and torque driven motions, and more)
  • Model particle shape using the highly validated and computationally efficient multi-sphere method:
    • Sphere Fitting tool allows you to create complex shapes automatically
    • Create flexible materials and fibers easily using the Meta Particle feature
  • Choose from a wide range of contact physics models, define material properties, or add a material model straight from EDEM’s extensive built-in libraries for realistic representation of rocks, soils, ores, powders, and more.

EDEM Simulator

EDEM Simulator is a powerful solver for fast and efficient simulations.

  • Cutting edge DEM solver, highly parallelized for use on multi-core shared memory workstations, GPU hardware, and multi-GPU systems
  • Solver engine is fully double precision across all platforms
  • Simulate large and complex particle systems
  • Live viewer window to easily review progress and assess design performance
  • Start and stop simulations at any time or configure data output while a simulation run
  • The EDEM Simulator is supported by a range of time-saving tools – including the novel Dynamic Domain as well as auto-settings for key DEM solver parameters – to help reduce your overall run time

EDEM Analyst

EDEM Analyst is the post-processing environment where simulations are reviewed and analyzed.

  • Advanced and powerful post-processing capability
  • Extensive set of tools for visualization and analysis (coloring, graphing, bin groups)
  • Create high resolution images and videos
  • Data mining: option to export all simulation results data in .csv format as well as an EnSight file for advanced visualization
  • Access EDEMpy: a Python library for post-processing and analyzing simulation data
