Advanced Fluid Modeling with Mimic - 7602

This 2-day course will build on foundations taught in Dynamic Simulation with Mimic while focusing on developing high fidelity models. Mimic’s Advanced Modeling Objects will be used to create end-to-end, unified pressure driven flow networks while incorporating complete mass and energy balances across the entire model. The student will learn to create high fidelity models of processes that contain both liquid and vapor in numerous unit operations. Through lectures, demonstrations, and workshops, students will learn to construct a first principles and unit operations based model.

*Recommended prerequisite: Dynamic Simulation with Mimic

Topics include:

  • Advanced modeling object configuration
  • Model layout and flow network development
  • Standard and advanced model aggregation
  • Tuning and optimization

Advanced Solids Handling with Mimic - 7603

This 2-day course will build on foundations taught in Dynamic Simulation with Mimic and Advanced Fluid Modeling with Mimic in constructing high fidelity models with liquids, vapors, and solids. Mimic’s Mining Advanced Modeling Objects will be introduced and used to incorporate material balances and particle size tracking across the entire model. The student will learn to create high fidelity models of processes that contain solids and slurries in a variety of different comminution and separation unit operations.

*Recommended prerequisite: Dynamic Simulation with Mimic; Advanced Fluid Modeling with Mimic

Topics Include:

  • Introduction to the advanced mining modeling package
  • Configuration and layout of a plant model
  • Tuning and optimization of slurry and solid streams
  • Supporting standard modeling for improved process responses
