EDEM Simulation Software – How it works


This webinar was last presented live on Wednesday 17th April, 2019. 

Learn more about EDEM – the market-leading Discrete Element Method (DEM) software for bulk and granular materials simulation.

This introductory webinar will explain the basics of setting-up, running and analyzing a simulation in EDEM – with the example of a front-end loader handling a rock-like material. 

It will also highlight how EDEM can be customized using its Application Programming Interface (API) for simulating complex and advanced material behavior. Finally it will introduce the coupling solutions available between EDEM and finite element analysis (FEA), multi-body dynamics (MBD) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). 

Whether you are new to bulk material simulation or require an advanced DEM solution check how EDEM software can suit your needs!
