Webinar: Meso-scopic Modelling of Powders and Soils in EDEM

Modelling fine particulate solids such as powders and soils with the classical micro-mechanical formulation of the Discrete Element Method (DEM) is challenging due to the large number of particles involved. In this webinar, we will introduce the meso-scopic modelling approach which can capture the complex behavior of fine particulate solids, while utilizing a numerical particle size of an intermediate scale between the physical particle scale and the scale of the system of interest.

A meso-scopic contact model will be introduced and examples of experimentally validated results from bench scale physical tests will be given along with examples of EDEM models for large scale systems.
