EDEM for Adams

Include realistic bulk material loads as standard in Adams system dynamics analysis.

EDEM for Adams has been developed specifically for engineers who use Multi-body Dynamics (MBD) software Adams of MSC Software in the design of heavy equipment such as excavators, bull dozers, ploughs that are intended to handle bulk materials like coal, ores, rocks, and soils.

It provides engineers with the capability to simulate bulk materials and use these realistic loads in Adams system dynamics simulations.

Including high-fidelity representation of the loads and the forces acting on equipment reduces the need to rely on hand calculations and approximation when designing heavy equipment and allows for optimized equipment design, reduced physical testing and improved design quality.

EDEM for Adams is a standalone software tool which connects to Adams using the Adams Co-Simulation Interface (ACSI). During simulation, the coupling transfers the realistic material loads from EDEM for Adams directly into Adams where they are used to calculate the effect on equipment dynamics. The updated dynamics are then passed back to EDEM to provide realistic force-feedback.
