Understanding the effect of particle angularity on granular flows
See how consumer goods companies use discrete element methods (DEM) in the development of products, including a vacuum cleaner example.
A recent study from Purdue University developed discrete element method (DEM) models to predict and ultimately reduce grain damage during harvesting.
Learn how CFD-DEM coupling expands the range of granular-fluid systems that can be simulated quickly and effectively.
Learn how simulation tools use Discrete Element Method (DEM) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to optimize processes and design parameters.
Rocky and Ansys integration realistically models granular materials and their complex behaviors by combining different physics.
In this post, you will learn how the Ansys Fluent-Rocky DEM coupling solution works and under what conditions it is best to employ it. You will also see some industry examples of problem solving for fluid particulate systems.
In a recent study, engineers used Rocky DEM and the Discrete Element Method to simulate iron ore pellets loading in double-hatch hold ships.
Idaho National Laboratory examines discrete element modeling (DEM) to advance understanding of biomass materials and learn how it can benefit companies.
Rocky DEM-Ansys Fluent two-way coupling was applied to simulate solids deposition in downhole tools subjected to scale-prone environments. The tools analyzed poly-dispersed particulate systems, including the effect of adhesive forces immersed in a viscous fluid flow.
The compression process involves very complex granularity with different stressors. A hybrid simulation model makes the best use of DEM and FEA to predict powder compression considering particle density distribution.
Rocky’s richest version to date presents a unique API, bringing exceptional user experience, single-code deployment and performance that won’t degrade, along with the flexibility to add custom models.
