Discrete elements method

Our expertise in simulation makes it possible to simulate the transport of granular and bulk materials with the discrete elements method (DEM). Our services are used to analyze chute blocking problems, increase their capacity or design new equipment. We also help designers of conveying system to validate their design by granular simulation.

Project examples

  • Study of granular material transport in conveying systems

  • Chute blockage analysis

  • Silo and container filling study

  • Granular projection risk analysis

  • Fill sequence

  • Dust generation study


  • Particles of constant or variable diameter

  • Interaction with mobile equipment

  • Cohesion between particles

  • Simple or complex filling sequence

  • Heat transfer
