Designing Agricultural Machinery with EDEM
In this webinar, learn more about EDEM software and how it can be used for the design, performance testing, and optimization of agricultural machinery.
Tractors, combines and forage harvesters are all designed to work with a range of granular materials such as crops, seeds and soils. These materials can impact the performance of the machine and its durability.
EDEM software, powered by the Discrete Element Method (DEM), accurately simulates the behavior of grains, seeds, crops and soils and provides engineers with crucial insight into how materials will interact with a piece of equipment during a range of operation and process conditions.
• Challenges of designing agricultural equipment
• Introducing EDEM simulation technology: overview and CAE integration
• EDEM applications examples:
combine harvesters, tillage tools, fertilizer spreader, grain handling & transport systems, and more
• EDEM workflow demo
Duration: 44 minutes
Modeling Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Processes Using Particle Simulation
In this webinar, learn more about Altair EDEM software and how it can help optimize a range of pharmaceutical manufacturing processes including mixing, milling, tableting, and tablet coating.
EDEM accurately simulates and analyzes the behavior of powders, tablets and capsules. It can provide key insight into operations and processes otherwise difficult or impossible to obtain using experiments alone.
Learn how leading pharmaceutical manufacturers including Novo Nordisk and Pfizer are using EDEM to increase process efficiency and capability, improve product quality, reduce prototyping costs, and get products to market quicker.
• Context and Challenges
• Introducing Altair EDEM
• Applications examples: storage and conveying, mixing, milling, tableting, and tablet coating
Duration: 57 minutes
From Mine to Blast Furnace – Optimizing the Steelmaking Process with EDEM
In this webinar learn more about EDEM software and how it can be used to optimize a range of operations and processes as part of the steelmaking process.
Bulk materials such as iron ore, coal, pellets and sinter are at the core of the steelmaking process. From transporting raw materials from the mines to the plant by wagons, moving materials on conveyor belts to the blast furnace and the actual charging of the furnace, efficient handling and processing of those materials is critical to achieve efficiency.
EDEM software, powered by the Discrete Element Method (DEM), accurately simulates the behavior of rocks, soils, ores, gravel, etc. It provides engineers with crucial insight into how bulk materials will interact with their equipment during a range of operation and process conditions.
• Raw material handling and transportation:
improving performance and reliability of equipment such as transfer chutes, coal wagons, bucket elevators, screw augers and more.
• Processes: optimizing performance of machines such as cone crushers, mills, vibrating screens, dryers and mixers.
• Blast furnace: minimizing segregation in charging process, optimizing material distribution and dispersal, predicting areas of equipment wear.
