Learn Aspherix® and/or CFDEM®coupling directly from the developers and get crucial knowledge!

Aspherix® Short course:

Course Goals:

    Learning the basics of numerical particle simulations with the "Discrete Element Method" (DEM)
    Overview of the theory of contact models, timestep restrictions, material calibration, etc.
    Learn to use Aspherix® via GUI and command line
    Postprocessing of Aspherix® simulations
    Basic material calibration: find correct model parameters for a material
    Participants learn to extend Aspherix® via the API

CFDEM®coupling Short course:
Course Goals:

    General introduction (e.g. drag modelling, first CFD simulations)
    Learn to use and modify Open Source CFD for specific purposes(e.g. modifying a solver)
    Getting started with CFDEM®coupling (CFD-DEM)(e.g. structure of a coupled simulation, available models, running & postprocessing a simulation)
    Presentation of a GUI workflow
    Basic material calibration (find correct model parameters for a material)
    Introduction to fluid-particle heat transfer

All Courses are designed for beginners with opportunities for questions on different levels of knowledge and skills. You can book each course separately. Attending the Aspherix® course prior to the CFDEM®coupling is not mandatory but highly recommended.


Intense hands-on-training directly with the architects of Aspherix® / CFDEM®coupling

Printed course materials

Free lunch and coffee & One networking dinner

EARLY BIRD RATES for registrations before 30thJune 2020. 

By booking both courses a free ticket for the 4th CFDEM®conference (October 1-2, 2020) is included. 

We want you to be our guest, get connected and meet our developers. 

Best regards,

The Team of DCS Computing
