BMS simulates over 10 million particles using Rocky DEM
Bristol-Myers Squibb, pharmaceutical company, used Rocky Multi-GPU capabilities to replicate over 10 million particles within a single simulation
The Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) pharmaceutical company uses Rocky 4 to simulate lab equipment tests, such as high-shear wet granulation and tablet coating studies, using Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) and discovers that the multi-GPU capabilities and non-spherical, polygonal particle shapes exclusive to Rocky enable them to exactly match their experimental values.
BMS uses Rocky DEM to:
- Replicate the over 10 million particles used in their scale-up experiments within a single simulation
- Achieve the same tablet shape representation and particle size distributions as used in the lab
- Make direct comparisons with experimental data without needing to export data to third-party software
Discover how Rocky DEM helped BMS to:
- Process 10 million particles on three GPUs 86 times faster than with an 8-core CPU alone
- Generate DEM simulations that achieved an exact match with experimental results
- Take steps towards reducing experimentation costs by using modeling to help design better experiments
