Quantitative modelling techniques and methods are central to the study and development of process engineering, including mineral processing. The course focuses on general information and exercises in HSC-Sim (Flowsheet simulation -module): HSC-Sim structure and user interface, toolbar, drawing flowsheets with HSC Sim, data necessary for building up a simulation in mineral processing, the structure of HSC Sim Distribution mode, simulation of metallurgical balance. Additionally, it will include general information about HSC Geo and mineral data browser.
