Our engaged experts use Discrete Element Method (DEM) to model the motion and interaction of large collections of discrete entities, simulate real particle shapes, and exact model the contacts between arbitrarily complex particles and geometry components.
How does the Discrete Element Method benefit my business?
The commercial and industrial use of DEM has only been made possible by recent advances in computational capacity, particularly around the GPU technology space. These advances have made the true power of this methodology accessible and applicable to real-world scenarios. We can now tackle systems made up of millions of particles and model exact contacts with real particle shapes.
DEM can be used on its own to explore the design and optimization of processes and machinery in the mining, agricultural, and pharmaceutical industries. Alternatively, it can be combined with more commonly used methods such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) or Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to provide estimates on machine load, power consumption, and lifetime prediction.
