EDEM for LMS Virtual.Lab Motion

Include realistic bulk material loads as standard in LMS Virtual.Lab Motion multi-body solution.

EDEM for LMS Virtual.Lab Motion has been developed specifically for engineers who use Multi-body Dynamics (MBD) software LMS Virtual.Lab Motion of Siemens PLM Software in the design of heavy equipment such as diggers, excavators and bull dozers,  that are intended to handle bulk materials like rocks, ores, soils and ores.

It provides engineers with the capability to simulate bulk materials and use these realistic loads in LMS Virtual.Lab Motion 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 LMS Virtual.Lab Motion is a standalone software tool which connects to LMS Virtual.Lab Motion using motion control elements and co-simulation files. During simulation, the coupling transfers the realistic material loads from EDEM for LMS Virtual.Lab Motion directly into LMS Virtual.Lab Motion 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.

Easy-to-use interface coupled with LMS Virtual.Lab Motion

Modern and intuitive interface to set up simulation. Analysis is performed directly in the familiar LMS Virtual.Lab Motion environment.

No expertise required

No knowledge of Discrete Element Modeling or expertise in bulk material simulation needed to use.

Instant access to materials models

Includes a library of thousands of materials models representing ores, soils, rocks, gravels for realistic material loads.
