Process Modeling, Simulation & Optimization

Part-A. Process Modeling, Simulation, and Optimization

Process modeling clearly plays a central role in Process Systems Engineering as it provides a framework based on mathematical modeling for predicting and optimizing the performance of chemical process systems.

We have organized the papers in Part-A. Process Modeling, Simulation, and Optimization in the following subsections:
- First Principles-Based Modeling and Simulation
- Empirical or Semi-Empirical Modeling
- Modeling Thermophysical Properties
- Numerical Methods for Steady State or Dynamic Simulation
- Optimization Algorithms and Applications
- Analysis of Process Behavior
