Abstract

In chemical engineering, modeling and simulation are important tools for engineers and scientists to better understand the behavior of chemical plants. Modeling and simulation are very useful to design, scale up, and optimize pieces of equipment and chemical plants for process control, troubleshooting, operational fault detection, training of operators and engineers, costing and operational planning, etc. A very important characteristic of modeling and simulation is its advantageous cost–benefit ratio because with a virtual chemical plant, obtained from the modeling and simulation, it is possible to predict different scenarios of operations and to test many layouts at almost no cost and in a safe way.
