Altair EDEM Web Training Series

August 24 - 02 September | 2:00 pm IST

Altair EDEM software, powered by the Discrete Element Method (DEM) technology, simulates and analyses the behavior of a wide range of bulk materials such as coal, ores, soil, powder, tablets, crops, rocks, and many more – providing engineers to with crucial insight into how granular materials interact with equipment and used for both virtual prototyping of equipment design as well as process optimization.

We are inviting you to join a free training course, introducing Altair EDEM software and its workflows.

Attendees will receive a FREE 1-month trial license of Altair EDEM Software!*


Day 2: EDEM Contact Models

August 26, 2021 | 2:00 pm IST (Duration 2 hours)

2 - EDEM Contact Models

This training session focuses on the Contact Models and physics laws in EDEM, the Contact Models describe the behavior of the particles as they interact with each other and the equipment.

Goals and Objectives:
