Case studies

What is it possible to model?

The discrete element method allows the representation of all sold bodies that can be imagined. They can be divided, according to their complexitiy, into solid bodies, surfaces and fibers. Therefore, there are no limits for the representation of real bodies, no matter which size. Below a few examples:

By using spheres of different diameters, size distributions can be modeled realistically

With faceted bodies with freely defineable geometry, there are no limits in modeling real bulk material processes

Flexible surfaces offer the possibility to model the handling of deformable bodies

The simulation of fibers provides in-depth insights into processes and machines that were previously impossible to model

If spheres, faceted bodies, surfaces or fibers are not sufficient on their own, they can be combined
