Introducing Ansys Rocky – Webinar

PADT is excited to share more information on one of the latest Ansys acquisitions, Rocky DEM.

Rocky is a powerful 3D Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) Particle Simulation Software that quickly and accurately simulates the flow behavior of bulk materials with complex particle shapes and size distributions, for typical applications such as conveyor chutes, mills, mixers, and other materials handling equipment.

Rocky is fully integrated with the Ansys Workbench suite of products, providing engineers with the ability to perform coupled analysis of particles simulation together with other physics such as structural and fluids. 

Such coupling can be performed using both 1-way and 2-way approaches, depending upon the nature of the problem to be solved. When Rocky is coupled with Ansys Mechanical software, engineers can evaluate the tension stresses and forces generated by granular matter as it interacts with materials handling equipment, such as transfer chutes and conveyor belts.

Join PADT’s Senior CFD Engineer and Rocky expert Tom Chadwick for a look at what this tool is all about, as well as how it operates in a variety of industries, such as:

  • Food & Beverage
  • Agricultural Equipment
  • Medical Devices
  • And More
