Rocky is a powerful, 3D Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) program from Granular Dynamics International (GDI) that quickly and accurately simulates particle behavior within a conveyor chute, mill, or other materials handling system. The software simulates more than 5 million particles in nearly limitless shapes and size distributions. Coupled with variable wet, dry, and dust-like properties, easy CAD import of geometries; and ability to move boundaries and vibrate surfaces, Rocky allows to replicate nearly any type of material and handling environment. Rather than just the typical spheres or sphere clumps used by many other similar DEM programs, Rocky also enables you to use non-round particles in the simulations. Shapes like faceted polyhedrons, briquettes, and cylinders compact, settle, and behave just like real-world particles, which lead more realistic simulations and results. And because each particle is calculated as one item, as compared to sphere clumps which are calculated as many individual spheres stuck together, it takes less time to calculate, reducing the overall processing time drastically.
