EDEM and ANSYS work closely together to bring innovative software solutions through the development of co-simulation capabilities.

 

  • Optimizing equipment design with EDEM and ANSYS Mechanical

EDEM and ANSYS have worked together to develop a capability enabling engineers to access EDEM bulk materials simulation data directly within ANSYS Workbench. This allows users to include high-quality and realistic representations of bulk materials and their complex behaviors in Finite Element Analysis.

Using EDEM with ANSYS removes the reliance on hand-calculation and assumption to determine equipment loading and means engineers are also able to reduce the frequency and cost of expensive physical prototyping.

  • Investigating particle-fluid systems with the ‘Parallel EDEM CFD Coupling for ANSYS Fluent’

EDEM and ANSYS have developed an open-source, two-way coupling between EDEM and ANSYS Fluent to provide a unique capability to model particle-fluid flows at the particle-scale. EDEM complements the ANSYS Fluent solid-fluid phase capability by adding discrete particle effects to the continuum model. The coupling allows ANSYS Fluent and EDEM to run using parallel processing in co-simulation environments. As an open-source software, users also have access to the coupling source code and can innovate and customize how Fluent and EDEM work together.
