Since its initial launch in 2005, EDEM is now deployed by
companies and research institutes in almost every industry
sector and engineering discipline. EDEM is used for a wide
range of particulate handling and processing applications
and our users are performing among the most advanced DEM
simulations in the world. The DEM Solutions User Meeting is
a great opportunity for you, our first generation of EDEM
users, to share in the impressive wealth of knowledge held
by the experts in our user community.
The meeting aims to create a dynamic and interesting forum
where current examples and technical advances can be shared
and you can learn how your peers are leveraging DEM in real
industry case studies, to design, develop and test
particulate products and processes faster and more
accurately than was previously possible.
Scotland's beautiful capital city of Edinburgh and
surrounding countryside has many world-famous attractions
including Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile, whisky
tasting and numerous golf courses. An exciting social
program is planned so you can also enjoy the "Scottish
Experience" to the full.
The first additions to our user meeting agenda are:
o Carol Plouffe, John Deere, presenting "Is EDEM
closing a Gap for Simulation-Based Design?"
o Michael D. Hogue, PhD, NASA, presenting
"Addition of Electrostatic Forces to EDEM with Applications
to Triboelectrically Charged Particles"
o Andrew Hobbs, Astec Inc, presenting "Simulation
of an Aggregate Dryer Using Coupled CFD and DEM Methods"
o Martin Engineering, presenting
"Predicting Bulk Material Flow Behavior through Conveyor
o Allert Adema, Netherlands Institute for Metals
Research, presenting "Prediction of the cohesive zone
properties in the iron making blast furnace"
The complete conference programme will be announced
closer to the meeting. If you would like email notification
