Optimization and Process Simulation


Couling, D., Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Computer simulation is a useful tool for many process development projects, and its utility will grow as computational power continues to increase. Process simulations can help predict product outputs, illustrate the interdependencies of key unit operations, demonstrate consequences of process upsets, and more. Moreover, process optimization routines can be used to mathematically determine optimal operating conditions rather than relying on heuristics or costly experimentation. This session focuses on both process simulations and optimization routines that have been developed and used in order to improve process performance.
