Modeling and Simulation Go Beyond Design

By Joy LePree |

More intuitive software allows new users to address optimization and complex tasks Modeling and simulation software is finding more use in chemical processing facilities because software vendors are making it easier to use and, therefore, more accessible to a wider range of personnel, while also adding more complex capabilities for more detailed and specialized applications. As a result, the latest modeling and simulation packages are being employed not only for process design and detailed engineering projects, but also for modeling and simulating the plant lifecycle, from design through operations, as well as optimization, de-bottlenecking and revamping tasks. “What we’re seeing is the need for the chemical engineering, engineering and chemistry disciplines to work together in order for the facility to be at its most cost effective. Barriers are coming down, so sharing of data and information must be improved, while at the same time, the economic model must be considered, because in this downturned market, there’s no room for waste,” says Michael Doyle, director and principal scientist with Dassault Systemes Biovia (San Diego, Calif.; www.3ds.com). “So regarding modeling and simulation software, there’s a need to have…
