Engineers flying high with software solution

Protection Engineering Consultants has added DEM Solutions' EDEM software to use in its multi-hazard assessment and protective design consulting work.

Protection Engineering Consultants will use the EDEM modelling software in a current project aimed at developing new civil aircraft arresting systems for safely decelerating an aircraft that overruns a runway during landing or take off.

DEM Solutions' EDEM software package will provide a way to model, test and evaluate promising alternative granular materials and design options for the arresting systems by modelling the action of aircraft tires rolling through simulated aggregate arresting beds. EDEM offers a virtual representation of aggregate dynamics that would be very computationally expensive to achieve with a finite element code. The ability to directly input aggregate material properties into the various model scenarios will also reduce time and costs.
