Fluent And DEM Solutions Announce Partnership

LEBANON, N.H. & EDINBURGH, United Kingdom—(BUSINESS WIRE)—March 7, 2006— Fluent Inc., the world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software and services, today confirms it has entered into a partnership with DEM Solutions, a leading developer of DEM (Discrete Element Method) software solutions. The move follows the announcement earlier this year that Fluent Asia Pacific in Japan, the wholly owned subsidiary of Fluent Inc, is delivering DEM Solutions' EDEM software to the Japanese market.

The result of 10 years R&D, DEM Solutions' EDEM software enables engineers across a broad spectrum of industries - chemical, pharmaceutical, materials processing, mining, agriculture - to simulate and analyze the behavior of particulate matter (pills, pellets, aggregates etc.) during processing, manufacturing and material handling operations. DEM Solutions estimate that the market for discrete element modeling software will grow to be a US$75 million sector worldwide over the next five years.

Already DEM Solutions' EDEM software is being applied by blue chip customers across the pharmaceutical, chemical, mining, agriculture, and geo-technical engineering industries. Typical issues in particulate process operations that the software is being used to address include bulk handling with conveyors, chutes and hoppers; particle grinding; agglomeration; mixing; equipment surface damage; excavation; filling and packing.

John Favier, CEO of DEM Solutions, notes, "We are delighted to be formalizing the relationship with Fluent into a development partnership. We believe there are significant synergies between the solutions provided by our two companies and that by working together we will be able to rapidly develop commercial products that will deliver new and unique capabilities into the CAE market."

Ahmad Haidari, Process Industry Market Director at Fluent Inc., added, "In our continued commitment to deliver high-end functionality and advanced solutions to the marketplace, we are pleased to be entering in a development partnership with DEM Solutions so as to complement Fluent's multiphase models with Discrete Element Modeling capabilities. We will support DEM Solutions' effort to further integrate EDEM with the FLUENT CFD code to allow engineers to simulate and analyze interactions between particles and fluid flow thus accounting for greater details of particle mechanics."
