Our engaged experts use the Discrete Element Method (DEM) to model the motion and interaction of large collections of discrete entities, simulate real particle shapes, and exactly model the contacts between arbitrarily complex particles and geometry components.
We use the findings to simulate and analyze the behavior of materials such as granular flows, powder processing, and the mechanics of soil excavation and transport. This allows our clients to quickly and efficiently understand, optimize and scale their processes to increase the service life of systems.
Our DEM services deliver innovative solutions that have helped companies across a wide range of industries, including mining, agriculture, consumer products, pharmaceutical, process engineering, and food processing. We’ve helped our clients to improve processes, equipment performance, and increase product quality.
