In the chemical processing industry it is not acceptable to determine just a correct answer -- the best answer is required. In order to remain economically competitive, simulation has to come into play. After all, simulation reveals hidden relationships in your process and helps you conduct risk-free experimentation. But using simulation to its fullest is a challenge. To help you succeed with simulation, check out these Chemical Processing articles:
Prevent Simulation Meltdowns
Process simulation is a powerful tool but can be hard to master. Even experienced users make mistakes that cause unexpected and unnecessary errors. Here are several common mishaps and techniques to avoid or address them.
Succeed at Simulation
The “Seven rules for successful simulation” need to be revisited and revised because of advancements in computers. Simulations that once took weeks to compute an answer now take mere hours.
Consider Dynamic Simulation for Steam System Design
Models can provide crucial insights for dealing with upsets and transient conditions.
Profit More from Process Simulation
The technology can improve a plant's bottom line in numerous ways.
Consider Discrete Event Simulation
The technique can provide supply chain and process improvement insights.
Don't Model in a Vacuum
Check simulator results against calculations using actual data.
