SpreadDEM is the first industrial numerical tool to perform virtual experiments of centrifugal fertilizer spreaders oriented to designers and producers of agricultural machinery.
Based on DEMPack technology, a Discrete Element Method (DEM) software for bulk material simulation, the trajectory of every single fertilizer particle is evaluated from the hopper to its contact with the ground.
SpreadDEM provides a complete and practical solution to optimize the design of the spreading machinery becoming an alternative to trial-and-error experimental testing. Thanks to its easy-to-use interface, users are able to simulate in a few intuitive steps and with minimal training the most significant results for the fertilizer spreading.
SpreadDEM has been developed in CIMNE by the DEMPack team.
Can be purchased in the GiD shop as a local or USB licence.
