Solid Particle simulation and tracking using Ansys

I'm fairly new to ANSYS, and I am using the student version 18.2. I'm interested in simulation flow of solid particles and tracking their movement. Ideally, I would like to be able to simulate the flow of solid particles from a silo. I am looking for resources such as videos/tutorials etc. (I have not been able to find any) on this topic. If not just anyone who has knowledge upon this topic please any help/tips would be appreciated. Is this sort of project even possible within Ansys?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Vishal. I have managed to gain some useful results using DPM. I am curious though, is it possible to gain results/simulation similar to the below video (link below) using ANSYS Fluent?

Thanks again.
