What is DEM?

Theoretical background behind the

Discrete Element Method (DEM)

The Discrete Element Method (DEM) is a particle-scale numerical method for modeling the bulk behavior of granular materials and many geomaterials such as coal, ores, soil, rocks, aggregates, pellets, tablets and powders.

EDEM is the market-leading software for bulk material simulation.

Powered by state-of-the-art Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) technology, EDEM quickly and accurately simulates and analyzes the behavior of bulk materials such as coal, mined ores, soil, tablet, and powders.

EDEM simulation provides engineers with crucial insight into how bulk materials will interact with their equipment during a range of operation and process conditions.

Since November 2019, EDEM has been part of Altair.
