craeting Horizontal rotating drum

Asked by Elbasher M E Ahmed on 2019-01-27

Hi,
I so new with yade. I would like to create a Horizontal rotating drum. I successfully made the vertical one.
Also how to make the drum to be more than half filled with spherical particles.

Thanks
Elbasher

Hi Elbasher,

Firstly, just want to ensure you are aware that ESyS-Particle and Yade are different Open Source DEM software packages. No guidance on the use of Yade can be provided via this (ESyS-Particle) user forum.

Assuming you do wish to use ESyS-Particle, rotating drums can be implemented as a triangulated mesh surface. Information on how to construct meshes using the gmsh software is available here:
http://www.esys-particle.org/wiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AncillaryDocumentation

There are also some scripts to covert STL (stereolithograph) files into triangle meshes for both ESyS-Particle and GenGeo here:
http://www.esys-particle.org/wiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ChileWorkshop
(These scripts can be found at the very end of that page)

To rotate the drum, you will need to use a Runnable that incrementally updates the positions of triangle mesh nodes.

Cheers,

Dion
