DEM Solutions, a specialist in discrete element modeling (DEM), has launched the Generic EDEM Material Model (GEMM) database.
This database, according to the company addresses on of the key challenges in DEM simulation: getting suitable material inputs for accurate representation of bulk materials.
The system requires users to input a set of basic material information, then conducts a search, returning a recommended material model.
“We are delighted to be launching a world first with the GEMM database. We often hear from customers and prospects that their biggest challenge in using DEM technology is in knowing how to create the material model that best represents the physical material they are dealing with. This unique tool addresses this concern and removes the final barrier for design engineers who have to interpret the impact of different material types on equipment. EDEM is the must have tool to understanding how equipment will perform; making sure what engineers see on screen is linked to the real world is vital. The GEMM Database makes this easy and for the first-time engineers have access to a library of material behavior. It is all about engineering with confidence.”
