Rocky DEM Logo



Rocky is an advanced DEM software package for simulation and analysis of particulate solids handling and processing operations. It has several distinct advantages over competitor codes that make it an engineering simulation tool that allows real world problems to be modelled and gives confidence to the engineers that the computational solutions have real value.

Benefits of ROCKY:

  • Fast and Accurate: Using streamlined calculations and double precision processing, ROCKY provides you with fast and accurate results. Very good parallel performance.
  • Realistic: ROCKY simulates discrete particles in a vast array of shapes and size distributions. Coupled with variable wet, dry, and dust-like properties.
  • Flexible: CAD import of geometries including XGL, STL and DXF to simulate any type of system. Ability to move boundaries and vibrate surfaces.
  • Easy: A compact user interface, integrated help topics, and customisable parameters make ROCKY simulations simple to set up.
  • Affordable: Priced significantly lower than other DEM codes meaning best value for money and a quicker return on investment.
  • Customisable: If out-of-the-box ROCKY doesn’t meet your requirements, developers can tailor the code to suit your exact requirements.

The breakage model used in Rocky DEM has various applications for accurately simulating the fragmentation and degradation of particles in bulk materials handling equipment. Rocky’s unique ability to simulate arbitrary-shaped convex polyhedral particles enables it to preserve both mass and volume in the breakage processes, providing increased accuracy over other commercial DEM codes.
