DescriptionProcess simulation is playing an increasingly important role in process engineering. Nowadays, process simulation is applied during all phases of process lifetime: the work of engineers is more often accompanied by simulations, from the development, planning and construction of plants to the operation.
Computers are becoming cheaper to use and progress in the fundamental sciences of modelling and mathematics are favouring the extended application of simulation techniques in many fields. This book highlights the fundamentals, the present situation, and the development trends of process simulation. It provides a manual for orientation in this subject and gives a clearer insight into the potential of this method. Unlike other books available on simulation techniques, this volume concentrates on an important application - the simulation of process engineering processes.
