Rocky is a powerful, 3D DEM program that quickly and accurately simulates particle behaviour within transfer chutes, mills and crushers, vibrating screens and many other bulk materials handling systems. It has a broad and unique set of capabilities and features making it one of the most advanced yet affordable DEM design tools on the market.

Some keys features include:
• an extensive library of realistic particle shapes,
• an easy-to-use interface,
• superior scalability with CPU and GPU processing,
• advanced particle breakage and attrition models,
• extraction of belt and surface wear data,
integration with ANSYS CFD and FEA,
• moving and vibrating boundaries and more.

How can DEM modelling help?
Many organisations worldwide are turning to DEM for their designs ultimately to reduce capital and operational costs by:

• increasing equipment life and capacity
• eliminating blockages and belt punctures
• decreasing spillage and product degradation
• reducing equipment noise, dust and power
• defining material/ore trajectories
• optimising belt tracking
• minimising linear wear and maintenance

The seminar will cover an overview of the software’s features and capabilities followed by a demonstration. Case studies and examples will be provided and future development plans will also be discussed.

Who should attend?
This seminar is intended for all new and existing users of DEM. Those that are currently not using DEM for their designs but are interested in understanding the capabilities and benefits of this technology are also encouraged to attend.
