EDEM Software Platform




EDEM Software Overview

The EDEM® Advantage

• Simulate any material type: large lumps, dry, fine, sticky, cohesive
• Represent any material shape using the validated multi-sphere method
• Easy-to-use, modern User Interface
• Fast and scalable compute performance
• Extensive customization capabilities with EDEM API
• Integrated with other CAE tools (FEA, MBD and CFD)

EDEM® is high-performance software for bulk material flow simulation. Powered by state-of-the-art Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) technology, EDEM quickly and accurately simulates and analyses the behavior of bulk materials such as coal, mined ores, soil, tablet, and powders.

EDEM simulation provides engineers with crucial insight into how bulk materials will interact with their equipment during a range of operation and process conditions.
