“Dynamic simulation and modelling have been widely used in the process industries for more than 20 years, yet it’s a tool that is still not being used to its potential. Looking beyond the typical applications to make best use of dynamic models can be highly rewarding. Once a model is built and available, consider putting it to work with some more novel applications.”


Dr Martin Sneesby
