Rocky DEM and ANSYS FEA Coupling

Structural optimization of material handling equipment using Rocky DEM and ANSYS Workbench

CADFEM are very pleased to invite you to this Webinar on 8th November, 10am GMT:  Rocky DEM (DEM = Discrete Element Modeling) is a software developed by our partner ESSS, the major simulation experts in Brazil.

For structural engineers working on equipment’s design, predictions of dynamic stresses induced on the equipment due to the bulk solids handling is critical. The coupling between Discrete Element Modelling (DEM) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) allows the user to better understand the structure behavior subject to an accurate granular loading direct from Rocky.

Due to the seamless integration of Rocky DEM with ANSYS within Workbench allows for further parameterization of the design in SpaceClaim and optimization using DesignXplorer.

In this webinar, coupling approach for Rocky and ANSYS Structural will be addressed. The coupling methodology will be presented together with applications examples. Moreover, a complete structural optimization case will be presented to illustrate the analysis.
