Rocky DEM and ANSYS Coupling

ROCKY DEM supports complete Multiphysics integration with ANSYS® Workbench environment, allowing engineers to transfer results seamlessly between ANSYS® Mechanical/CFD and ROCKY. Applications include:

  • Dust suppression systems
  • Pneumatic conveying
  • Granular drying
  • Granular sorting
  • Slurry mills
  • Fluidized beds

In addition, ROCKY's GPU and Multi-GPU processing combined with ANSYS® Mechanical/CFD’s CPU parallelization capabilities, ensures that there are no resource competition between the two tools. With this new approach, large and complex multiphase problems can now be solved effectively.

  • 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.
