EDEM Simulation of Potato Harvester: Assess Grading, Segregation Performance & Crop Damage

EDEM is high-performance Discrete Element Method (DEM) software for bulk material flow simulation. EDEM is used for ‘virtual testing’ of equipment that handles or processes bulk materials in a wide range of industries including manufacturing of agricultural machinery.

The video shows an EDEM simulation of conveying potatoes through a fragment of a potato harvester. The equipment parts simulated include picking table web, grading rollers and a floor bunker. The video demonstrates how EDEM can be used to test different equipment designs and presents examples of analysis that can be performed.

EDEM Simulation of Excavator using coupled simulation with Multibody Dynamics

EDEM is high-performance Discrete Element Method (DEM) software for bulk material flow simulation. In this video EDEM is coupled with Multibody Dynamics (MBD) software Adams from MSC Software. The EDEM-MBD coupling is used in this example to define the motion of the excavator as it digs through different materials. Force and spillage analysis can be performed for different operating conditions. Using the prescribed motion represents an ideal digging scenario and can be used to estimate the power requirements on the actuators.
