New EDEM/RecurDyn co-simulation solution gives off-highway equipment engineers high-fidelity modeling of bulk material behaviors

Bulk-material simulation specialist EDEM released a co-simulation solution between its software and RecurDyn, the multibody dynamics modeling and simulation toolset from FunctionBay. This new integration enables engineers designing heavy equipment such as excavators, ploughs and off-road vehicles to introduce realistic bulk-material behaviors into their multibody dynamics simulations. EDEM says the new technology offers heretofore unrivaled insight into how material loads are transferred throughout the product’s structure and systems, and provides engineers with essential insights into equipment/material interactions.

Introducing EDEM high-fidelity load values into RecurDyn multibody dynamics simulations frees engineers from hand calculations and guesswork.

Design exploration vs. design optimization

Automating the search for solutions to engineering problems can take either of two broad approaches: design exploration or design optimization. Practitioners making technology choices need to understand which tools do one, which do the other, and which approach best fits their needs. A global roster of commercially available design exploration and optimization software appears at the end of this post. Continue reading
