Abstract

Computational analysis software is now widely accepted as a key industrial tool for plant design and process analysis. This is due in part to increased accuracy in the models, larger and faster computer systems and better graphical interfaces that allow easy use of the technology by engineers. The use of computational modelling to test new ideas and analyse current processes helps to take the guesswork out of industrial process design and offers attractive cost savings. An overview of computer-based modelling techniques as applied to the materials processing industry is presented and examples of their application are provided in the contexts of the mixing and refining of lead bullion and the manufacture of lead ingots.
