What is DEM?

Discover everything you've always wanted to know about Discrete Element Method

Get ready for our DEM Series. In this first webinar, we will look at aspects of Discrete Element Method.

DEM is a first principle numerical technique that models the interaction of individual particles with other particles and boundaries to predict the behavior of bulk solids. Today DEM is becoming widely accepted as an effective way to solve engineering problems across many industries that deal with granular flows, ranging from fine powder to large rocks.
