Why simulate?


There are many industrial processes that are very difficult to prototype or to understand in detail by testing and experimentation. Numerical simulation enables you to analyze aspects of your processes or phenomena that may not otherwise be possible by other means. Complementary to traditional experimentation, simulation techniques like DEM and CFD provide you an enhanced understanding of your processes.


Since DEM and CFD are tools for predicting what will happen under a given set of circumstances, they can answer many "what if?" questions. In a timely manner, you can predict how your design will perform, and test many variations until you arrive at an optimal outcome. All of this can be done before beginning physical prototyping and testing, thereby reducing expensive experimentation costs. The foresight you gain from numerical simulation helps you to design better and faster.


Better and faster design and analysis leads to shorter development cycles. Time and money are saved. Products get to market faster. Enhanced equipment is available with less downtime. Process efficiency is improved. To summarise, DEM and CFD are tools for compressing your design and development cycles, and enhancing your process operation and throughput.
