WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

P&G has been using Aspherix simulation software technology for the past eight years for modeling particulate processes via Discrete Element Method (DEM).

Dr. Christopher Stoltz

Procter & Gamble

DCS has a long tradition in keeping the finger on the pulse of academic innovations of numerical methods to deliver cutting edge products and services. I am very happy to extend our already fruitful collaboration in the 2019-2023 EU Caliper consortium.

Dr. Joshua Dijksman

Wageningen University & Research

We profit from close collaboration with DCS Computing GmbH on the development of an innovative simulation model that helps us advance in computational process engineering. We appreciate their capacious expert knowledge and strong technical support.

Dr. Markus Klinsmann

Robert Bosch GmbH

Scientists at Idaho National Laboratory in Idaho Falls, ID, USA have performed DEM simulation studies of bulk mechanical test for woody biomass particles using LIGGGHTS. A reasonable agreement is found between the DEM simulations and physical experiments in a cyclic loading & unloading test, which is used for characterizing the mechanical properties of granular materials.

Competences, technologies and excellent services of DCS Computing offers us tailor made simulation capabilities to study complex phenomena in process engineering and plastics industries.
The value creation applying DCS solutions is proven in several projects throughout the years of cooperation.

Dr. Harald Herbst

Borealis Polyolefine GmbH

ESCO has utilized DCS’ DEM technology to simulate mining excavation since 2013 for products such as hydraulic face shovels, excavators, draglines and rippers. DCS’ DEM technology and DCS expert support has greatly accelerated ESCO’s capability and project completion rate.
DCS responsiveness and efficiency has exceeded expectations, and is an excellent value.
