DEM Solutionsí software, EDEM, enables engineers to simulate particulate solids within their handling, processing and manufacturing operations to produce valuable information for innovation and improvement of equipment and process design. The company currently has blue chip clients in the Americas, Europe and the Far East.
EDEM also has the unique ability to couple with other CAE tools, which gives the software the power to simulate the complicated interactions between particles and other media. These CAE couplings include fluid dynamics, structural analysis, electrical and magnetic fields, chemical kinetics and rigid body dynamics.
