    “ EDEM has proven to be a very good tool to simulate the dynamics of grinding media in attrition-type powder grinding mills, and for analyzing the relationship between the rate of energy dissipation and grinding efficiency during milling. The EDEM Multibody Dynamics Coupling Interface enables us to incorporate the effect of instantaneous retardation of impeller motion due to jamming of the grinding balls, which increases the accuracy of the predicted energy dissipation rates. ”

    “ Employing the Field Data Coupling and Electrostatic modules, I use EDEM Academic simulation software to model the behavior of lunar dust in the presence of travelling electromagnetic waves. With EDEM, it’s easy to comprehend, modify and implement the API codes and couple them with third party solvers. And when there is an issue or difficulty, the technical staff is always competent and responsive. Moreover, the “EDEM User Forum” actively involves users and specialists in providing additional reading material, insight and resources. ”

    “ In my opinion EDEM is the fastest and the most versatile commercial DEM software on the market. EDEM's advanced capabilities, customization options, and coupling module capabilities are major strengths, providing unique characteristics required for research on industrial cases. I am also very impressed by the frequently released updates and technical support. ”

    “ …In the HPGR, one of the most important operating variables - the gap between the rolls - can't be determined a priori, because the gap varies as the grinding roll moves horizontally, responding to the balance of forces applied from the material bed and the mounting spring assembly. Using a custom rigid body dynamics model implemented using the new EDEM Multibody Dynamic Coupling Interface we have been able to tackle this important issue in HPGR modeling. Increased understanding of the HPGR grinding process will drive design improvements and further performance optimization. ”

    “EDEM’s advanced simulation capability and fast run times, using parallel processing, gives us the ability to simulate, visualize and analyze very large particle systems. The user-friendly GUI helped us quickly integrate EDEM simulation into our research, allowing us to publish results within months of deploying the platform. ”

    “EDEM software is a powerful and versatile tool to simulate dynamics of granular state particles. It provides the capability of analysing their behavior to different sets of process parameters, without the need to implement all of them in the real system. We have been able to save both time and costs during the design and optimization phases of the prototypes developed in our research projects at the University of La Rioja. ”
