• How user-added models can be developed to complement or enhance the capabilities of process simulators
• How and when to change the default sequence and method of solution in process simulators to aid convergence
• How to use a steady-state simulator to perform sensitivity and optimization studies
• How to use a process simulator for estimating physical property parameters
The fundamental concepts required for the basic use of steady-state process simulators were introduced in Chapter 13. These concepts should be clearly understood before proceeding with this chapter. Some of the features discussed in this chapter may not be available in a particular process simulator. ...
