Course Objectives The goal of the course is to provide an introduction to the basic steps of physical system modelling, model simplification, and model simulation. The course discusses many example problems from the area of extractive metallurgical processes, both transient and steady-state. Utilization of computers will be a key instrument in all steps of model formulation, model simulation and model approximation. The modelling and simulation exercise is an individual exercise where the student has to formulate a dynamic model on the basis of a description of the system in the form of a term-project from the literature. Subsequently, a simulation using a modelling software is required to investigate and assess the dynamic properties and behaviour of the plant or system under study, as relevant for its operation
Course Description Examples of metallurgical processes, their mass and energy balances, and simultaneous solutions, Fundamentalsof modeling and simulation, in-class demonstration of modeling software, Description of certain extractivemetallurgical processes (roasting, smelting, leaching, precipitation, electrolysis, refining, etc.) and steps of their
mathematical modeling, Concepts of kinetics, batch, and continuous processes in extractive metallurgy,Determining the effect of controlling parameters, such as particle size, temperature, concentration, pressure,
gas/liquid/solid flow rate, stirring speed, current density, etc., and athematical modeling thereof. Assigning theseparameters to the student groups as term projects, Hands-on experimenting of modeling software in thecomputer-lab to investigate the effect of these parameters, individually assigned to the groups of students,Building the models of metallurgical processes, investigated under the light of related controlling parameters, theirsimulation with modeling software, in-class presentation of these models by the student groups to theirclassmates.
Course Outcomes Upon completion of this course, a student should be able to:
1. Identify, analyze, and design modelling phenomena of the extractive metallurgy processes.
2. Demonstrate appropriate ability when using MS office applications such as spreadsheet and presentation software to communicate effectively and efficiently in both oral and written reports.
3. Demonstrate proper use of computer modelling & simulation systems to solve mathematical problems using both analytical and numerical approaches.
4. Develop and implement numerical algorithms typical of engineering problems using the type of computer applications aforementioned.
5. Demonstrate proper use of a metallurgical process simulator to study mass and energy balances in both transient and steady-state processes.
6. Demonstrate appropriate levels of self-motivation and capabilities towards self-learning of computer applications applied to metallurgical engineering.
Required Facilities
Other Within the context of this course, each student group is assigned with a metallurgical process and is expected to model that process through the semester with the help of commercial software (CadsimPlus or IDEAS). At the end of the semester they will present their model in front of their classmates.
