EDEM integrates with Abaqus to enable engineers to use realistic bulk material loads as direct input to Abaqus FE simulations.
Using EDEM in combination with Abaqus provides engineers designing bulk materials handling equipment with a detailed understanding of the impact materials have on their designs. The EDEM-Abaqus sequential coupling enables engineers to export realistic bulk material loads from EDEM and use them as direct input to Abaqus FE simulations.
Using high-fidelity loads provides engineers with greater insight into equipment performance and means improved design accuracy. By removing the reliance on hand-calculation and assumption to determine equipment loading, engineers using EDEM with Abaqus are also able to reduce the frequency and cost of expensive physical prototyping.
