Yes. Any particles modeled in Rocky DEM can have different friction coefficients, or other material properties custom-defined within Rocky.
Rocky DEM can model solids, shells, flexible fibers and more. Virtually any shape or size 3D volumetric shape which can be imported in an STL format can be used as particle for bulk modeling and particle interactions within Rocky DEM.
Yes. Rocky DEM is tightly integrated with Ansys tools and can also provide 1-way coupling to other 3rd party FEA or CFD analysis systems.
Yes. Rocky DEM has its own proprietary solver technology and can also provide fully bundled or separate Pre and Post processing capabilities.
Yes! Rocky DEM provides solving on 2 CPU cores out of box but can enable scaling to a virtually unlimited count of CPU or GPU (recommended*) cores with associated licensing.
Rocky DEM provides solving on 2 CPU cores out of box. There are also CPU and GPU “packs” for multi-core processing. Because each model and hardware/software configuration is different, we recommend talking to our sales and technical personnel.
Yes! There are a number of sample files that help get you acclimated with the GUI and workflow.
Unlimited! As much as you have time and hardware to support. The greatest limiting factor in terms of particle count is solve time, which varies with each model and hardware configuration.
