Discrete element method (DEM) modeling is ideal for solving problems that are difficult to simulate using traditional continuum-based methods. DEM models capture failure and large deformations that occur in granular media and the stresses, progressive failure, and erosion in solids under static and dynamic loading conditions.Learn more
Our consulting team of engineers and scientists has extensive experience in developing and applying DEM applications to prototype engineering designs, operational outcomes and the behavior of bulk materials.
We are committed to providing creative and high-quality physics based modeling and engineering services to our customers.
Coupi DEM models are used to simulate solids and particles on Earth and for off-world systems that allow engineers to examine a variety of scenarios. Comparisons of Mars Exploration Rover wheel mobility test results with Coupi DEM simulations validate Coupi model accuracy. Coupi models have been developed to examine impact forces of debris on river infrastructure, penetration mechanics, direct shear and triaxial soil tests Coupi software is capable of creating solutions to many other complex problems.Learn more
