Adding realistic loads in LMS Virtual.Lab Motion with bulk material simulation


This webinar was last presented live on Tuesday, 5 December, 2017

Multi-body dynamics tools such as LMS Virtual.Lab Motion from Siemens PLM Software are often used in the design of heavy equipment such as excavators, ploughs and dozers. In order for engineers to get confidence in the structural durability and the design performance it is critical to get an accurate representation of the loads acting on a system.

In this webinar, we will look at the challenges of designing heavy equipment and discuss traditional approaches to obtaining material loads as well as their limitations. We will introduce an alternative using bulk material simulation technology and provide an overview of ‘EDEM for LMS Virtual.Lab Motion’ – a tool that enables engineers to include realistic material loads directly and easily in their multi-body solution.
