Solids Modeling with DEM, Fully Coupled with CFD
Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Engineers across a broad spectrum of industries increasingly use DEM simulation tools to analyze the granular motion and interaction of solid particles such as:

  • Aggregates
  • Sand
  • Rocks
  • Food particles
  • Metal fragments
  • Tablets
  • Capsules
  • Slurries

DEM allows the tracking and interaction between every particle in a numerically efficient manner, the modeling of contact forces and energy transfer due to collisions and also conductive and radioactive heat transfer between particles. This online webcast will show the benefits of a new approach to DEM and how engineers can expand its application so it is fully coupled with CFD in a single environment. Examples of setting up, running and analyzing particle packing and particle flow problems will be shown using STAR-CCM+. Real World Solids simulation has finally arrived in a single, easy to use CAE environment. This event is appropriate for various industrial applications such as oil and gas, pharmaceutical, civil engineering and hydraulic engineering, etc.
