EDEM BulkSim® – high-performance bulk material flow simulation software for use by engineers designing bulk materials handling equipment in mine operations and minerals processing plant, such as transfer chutes, stockpile reclaimers, and material feed and discharge chutes in comminution circuits.
Bulk material flow simulation using DEM (Discrete Element Method) modeling enables engineers to make design decisions with confidence, throughout the design process, resulting in equipment that is better optimized to perform well, across the expected range of operating conditions.
EDEM BulkSim simulation enables both qualitative and quantitative analysis of conveyor transfer point designs to explore design scenarios and verify performance. It provides engineers with the insight to make design decisions concerning a range of key areas including:
• Prevention of plugging and spillage
• Identification of excessive material velocities and dispersed flow
• Ensuring appropriate delivery of material onto conveyor belts
• Optimization of wear protection
