EDEM for ANSYS simulation tool from EDEM (Edinburgh, Scotland) enables engineers to add realistic bulk material loads as standard in ANSYS structural analysis without the need for Discrete Element Method (DEM) knowledge or expertise in bulk material simulation. This tool is developed specifically for engineers who use ANSYS finite element analysis in the design of heavy equipment such as truck bodies, diggers, grab buckets and excavators that are intended to handle bulk materials like coal, ores, rocks and soils. EDEM for ANSYS is fully streamlined and integrated to work within the ANSYS Workbench environment. According to EDEM, the new tool provides engineers with a detailed understanding of the impact materials have on their designs, leading to greater insight into equipment performance and enabling more design optimization improvements.
