Particle simulation for particles and bodies

ROCKY DEM (DEM= Discrete Element Modeling) is software from ESSS, one of the large simulation specialists from Brazil, and Granular Dynamics International, a US firm of experts in DEM calculation with 30 years of experience. ROCKY DEM provides precise prediction of particle behavior for granular and fluid systems in which media flows, energy absorption rates, and particle breakage are analyzed. ROCKY can help understand processes and make specific improvements anywhere that a large quantity of particles and bodies, regardless of size, form, material, and adhesion strength, are put in motion in mixing, pouring, sliding, and flowing processes.

These improvements include measures for optimizing the movement process of the mass, like minimizing material loss, or avoiding or suppressing dust build-up. They also provide important information to structure the peripheral products more efficiently, for example increasing the service life of conveyor belts and other components.

ROCKY DEM can optimize agitator mills, SAG mills, crushers, and high-pressure grinding rolls. The particle spectrum ranges from small synthetic parts to tablets to gravel.

ROCKY DEM and ANSYS

With ROCKY for ANSYS, the particle simulation is enhanced with important structural and fluid mechanical information. This is achieved through complete integration into ANSYS Workbench. The compact and user-friendly user interface from ROCKY for ANSYS ensures simple installation and operation. CAD geometries can also be imported quickly and easily.

ROCKY for ANSYS Mechanical

With ROCKY, various combinations of shape, size, adhesion (adhesion strength) can be created and mixed with clear particle definitions. For example, mining companies can effectively manage the challenges they face with regard to operating costs, process optimization, and liability risk through the simulation

ROCKY for ANSYS Fluent

ROCKY for ANSYS Fluent is fully integrated into the ANSYS Workbench environment and offers engineers the option of linked analysis and simulation of particles and liquid together with other physical domains. Such a link can be disengaged by using one-way or two-way integration.
