Computer Simulation of Natural Gas Liquefaction Plant Processes
To approach an optimum design selection for a natural gas liquefaction plant it is necessary to make the process calculations for various selected designs and then to obtain capital and operating costs to select the best plant. The process calculations for a given flowsheet are very time-consuming when made by hand, even when done by an experienced process engineer utilizing a computer to perform certain portions of the calculations. Application of large-scale digital computers to the complete detailed calculations for process flowsheets allows the engineer to rapidly assess numerous alternates, thus facilitating the selection of an optimum process.
