Wherever the possible model structure is related to the underlying physical processes that govern the behaviour of particulate material in the processing equipment, 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.
