Get Your Hands Dirty! – How to Run An Adams-EDEM Co-Simulation

In my previous blog post I introduced the Adams-EDEM coupling that allows engineers to realistically simulate how bulk materials interact with their systems dynamics. In this post I want to give some insight on the workflow needed to use the coupling.

Reducing the Product Development Time of a Rotary Cutter System Through Simulation

In the agricultural and heavy machinery industries, durability and strength are some of the most important indicators of quality. Maintaining high levels in these areas requires the application of many different tests and assessments to the end product. However, one of the most time-consuming parts of the production is the lengthy process of building physical prototypes, testing them for durability, then redesigning several parts and starting all over again. This process can significantly extend the time it takes to get a product to market. This was the case for John Deere Welland Works while developing a 20-foot rotary cutter system.

Where’s the Dirt? – Use Realistic Material Loads in Adams

The world of heavy equipment is full of big machinery digging and moving dirt. Millions of tons of bulk material are moved every day by excavators, bull dozers, ploughs and trucks. The challenge faced by engineers who are designing such equipment is to understand how their machines will perform in the material environment they operate in.
