ESSS presents the DEM Series. This first webinar 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.

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


Dr. Saurabh Sarkar is an Applications Engineer for the Rocky DEM Business Unit. Prior to joining ESSS, Dr. Sarkar worked as an Adjunct Faculty at Rutgers University and an on-site Consultant at Sunovion Pharmaceuticals where he supported drug formulation and process development activities. He obtained his Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics from the University of Connecticut where his focus was understanding and optimization of different pharmaceutical unit operations using DEM and CFD tools in projects with multiple industrial and government collaborators. He is a Senior Member of the AIChE and serves as an expert reviewer for several journals.

Our DEM Series will be presented in webinars:

1 – What is Discrete Element Method? – September 27th
2 – Advanced Models of DEM – October 25th
