Applications of modelling: a case study from process design
In: B. Braunschweig, R. Gani (Eds.): Software architecture and tools for computer aided process engineering, Elsevier Science, 2002, 335-372
This chapter is devoted to the application of models in process systems engineering. The introductory section gives a general overview on model use in different application areas. The general problems encountered during model construction and application are discussed. The main topic of this chapter is a case study of model use during the design of a process for polyamide6 production. The design includes models constructed with spreadsheet, flowsheeting and equation-based modeling tools. After a thorough presentation of the models constructed during the design the role of these tools as used to support the work process is analyzed.
Modeling, case study, process design.
