EDEM 2018 focuses on productivity and performance and includes a range of new features and enhancements enabling users to speed-up their workflow all the way from setup to processing and analysis of simulations.

Integration with other CAE tools is also a key theme of this release with the introduction of new coupling solutions with Finite Element Analysis software Abaqus from Dassault SystemesSIMULIA and Multi-body Dynamics tool RecurDyn from FunctionBay.

Soils Starter Pack for DEM Simulation (EDEM 2018)

The Soils Starter Pack has been introduced as part of EDEM 2018. It includes 8 models of soils including different range of compressibility and stickiness. These models make use of different physics models inbuilt in EDEM to model a range of soils from gravels to soft compressible soils.

This resource is intended for users designing heavy equipment including off-road construction, agricultural & forestry machinery and vehicles which are handling, or in contact, with soft soils. The Soils Starter Pack makes it possible to quickly and easily compare equipment designs with a range of different soils and test their performance for extreme conditions, for instance for a compressible, highly-sticky material such as mud and a free flowing one such as sand.
