Rocky Software - EDRMedeso
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.


Rocky is a powerful, 3D Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) program that quickly and accurately simulates the granular flow behavior of different shaped and sized particles within a conveyor chute, mill, or other materials handling equipment.

Several capabilities set Rocky DEM apart from other DEM codes, including non-round particle shapes, the ability to simulate particle breakage without loss of mass or volume, the visualization of boundary surface reduction due to wear, and more.

Mining and manufacturing organizations all over the world are choosing Rocky DEM software to evaluate their bulk material handling systems because Rocky DEM simulates granular flow quickly, accurately, and with more similarity to real-world conditions than ever before. With its ability to create realistic shapes that settle and compact just like actual particles, and its variable sticky and dust-like conditions, Rocky DEM can replicate nearly any type of material handling environment imaginable.

The streamlined calculations and GPU processing capabilities included within Rocky DEM produce faster and more accurate results when compared to other DEM products. And Rocky DEM can simulate more than 5 million particles in nearly limitless size and shape distributions from rocks to grain, metal to plastic, and beyond.

Mining and Metal

Discover a revolutionary way to enhance mining and metallurgical processes. Transfer Chutes, Feeders, Mills and Crushers are just some of the bulk materials handling equipment that Rocky DEM helps engineers evaluate and optimize. Compare design modifications, replicate changes to production or environmental conditions by simulating coherent flow structures, equipment and liner wear, mixing efficiency, and more.

Pharma, Agricultural and Food

The accurate shape representation and fragmentation models found in Rocky DEM can be used to evaluate the behavior of tablets, pills, snack chips, and more inside various kinds of screening, sorting, and mixing equipment. Using Rocky to analyze these devices can help reduce prototyping costs and design time, increase equipment efficiency, and optimize for production or unanticipated material properties.

Other Industries

Rocky DEM’s integration with CFD (particle-fluid interaction) and FEA (particle-structure interaction) enlarges the range of industrial processes that can be modeled using DEM, such as Geology and Geophysics, Oil and Gas, Asphalt and Construction, Chemical, Aerospace and Automotive, Electronics and Nanotechnology industries.
