NEXT Webinar - What is DEM?

Written By: 

Get ready for our DEM Series. In this first webinar, we will look at aspects of Discrete Element Method

DEM is a first principle numerical technique that models the interaction of individual particles with other particles and boundaries to predict the behavior of bulk solids. Today DEM is becoming widely accepted as an effective way to solve engineering problems across many industries that deal with granular flows, ranging from fine powder to large rocks.


Get ready for our DEM Series. In this first webinar, we will look at aspects of Discrete Element Method.

Register to this webinar to learn more about DEM and how it might be useful in your application.

This webinar will cover:

• The definition of DEM, bulk solids
• Origin
• Basic DEM algorithms 
• Differentiation with continuum methods 
• Common Applications


Our DEM Series will be presented in webinars:

1 - What is Discrete Element Method? - September 27th
2 - Advanced Models of DEM - October 25th
3 - Multiphysics - November 22nd




  • I would like to hereby express my vote of confidence in Qfinsoft, in their ability to service and provide a strong support to us as a company.  We have been a customer of Qfinsoft for over a year and I am pleased to compliment them on their impeccable service offered to us thus far

  • Since the introduction of ANSYS, more students are using first principles and FEA to validate their designs. This year, more than 60% of the projects were using FEA as a standard approach for numerical calculation. This number shows the huge impact ANSYS, had on University of Pretoria. FEA is not anymore a specialised tool for few users but a standard engineering tool easily integrated in the design process.

  • At Aerospace, we have successfully used the ANSYS suite of tools to design high-performance gas turbine engines. Throughout this program, Qfinsoft provided valuable support and assistance to accelerate the development of our models. Their accessibility, short-turn around times and willingness to go beyond what is expected make them an effective partner on our projects.
