EDEM BulkSim


Material model and modeling with Altair BulkSim Assessing the material model is critical before conducting a discrete element method (DEM) simulation. This helps determine the particle flow, material cohesion, and potential blockages in the chute design. The primary objective is to create and save a “Calibrated” material model for later use in similar applications. Furthermore, … Read more

SimLab is a process-oriented multidisciplinary simulation environment to accurately analyse.

Multiphysics Workflows with CAD Associativity.

SimLab is a process-oriented multidisciplinary simulation environment to accurately analyse. the performance of complex assemblies. Multiple physics including structural, thermal, and fluid dynamics can be easily set up using highly automated modelling tasks, helping to drastically reduce the time spent creating finite element models and interpreting results. Altair’s robust, accurate and scalable solvers can run either locally on remote servers or in the cloud. An intuitive and self-explanatory graphical user interface covers all aspects of the modelling process. Instead of tedious geometry clean-up, work is performed directly on the geometry – imported and updated via the bi-directional CAD coupling - by defining mesh specifications for individual regions.
