Sign-up for EDEM - Introduction

Join the Altair EDEM online training session for 2024, and learn the basics of the Discrete Element Method (DEM), and how to use EDEM for various industrial applications. 

  • There are 2 training sessions 
  • Each session lasts approximately 2 hours, including a Q&A section 
  • Click on the 'Go to event' link below to register for both days

Day 1 - Session 1
This training session introduces the  Discrete Element Method and the EDEM Workflow. Also the considerations for modeling particle solids, best practices, and how to set up an EDEM model. You will learn the main EDEM Contact Models available, and the importance of calibrating your material model.

  • Familiarize with EDEM workflow and applications
  • Introduction to EDEM contact models
  • Understand EDEM calibration methodology
  • EDEM simulator and solver settings (CPU and GPU)

Day 2 - Session 2
In this training session, we will build on the EDEM Introduction session and explore the EDEM simulation workflow and the post-processing features of EDEM. You will learn how to run a simulation, visualize the granular material behavior, and extract relevant metrics and data for analysis. You will also learn how to create dynamic videos of your simulation.

  • Use Selections and Sensors tools
  • Export EDEM Data
  • Create videos and graphs
  • Advanced analysis, including Continuum analysis

We strongly recommend to watch the EDEM eLearning course: EDEM - Prerequisite eLearning
