Process Modeling & Simulation of Mineral Processes: Hands-on

Process Modeling & Simulation of Mineral Processes: Hands-on. Process Modeling and Simulation for Metallurgical & Chemical Engineering Processes in METSIM- Complete Hands-On Learning. Are you a student or professional in the field of Mining EngineeringMetallurgyChemical EngineeringProcess Plant DesigningMetallurgical Engineering, or the science of Metals and have not been able to utilize process simulation software specific to the Minerals processing industry, process modeling, simulation and optimization of real-world problems? Don’t worry as THIS IS THE COURSE FOR YOU!

Process Modeling & Simulation of Mineral Processes: Hands-on

This course will expose you to software specific to the Minerals industry with embedded mineral processing unit operations like Crushers, SAG Mills, Kilns, Material handling Equipment, etc. which are not found in other simulation software like ASPEN PLUS, ASPEN HYSYS, and DWSIM.

In this course, students will be equipped with practical skills and knowledge of how to perform successful simulation studies of real-world scenarios using METSIM software.

If you enroll in this course, you won’t miss the hands-on appreciation of using METSIM simulator as well as understanding the best practices of performing successful metallurgical simulation studies.

If you are new to process modeling and simulation in metallurgical operations, don’t worry anymore we have you covered, this course will first introduces you to the basics of mineral process simulation, followed by a series of step-by-step practical demonstrations.

NB: Students are strongly encouraged to follow through the demonstrations and repeat the practicals on their own computers.

  • 1st part is Introduction Theory. (25%)
  • 2nd part is Practical sessions. (75%)

Let’s have a quick review of METSIM Software.

METSIM provides an interactive, fast, and accurate means of solving costing, heat balance, and material balance problems in a vast number of applications. The software is used by many companies throughout the world to design, simulate and control operations from mine to tailings and everything in between. At its absolute simplest, METSIM software can be used to create a process flowsheet. The modules in METSIM cover mass and energy balances for either steady-state or dynamic simulations of mine, stockpile, heap leach, material handling, comminution, beneficiation, hydrometallurgy, pyrometallurgy, gas and steam handling, and tailings management processes.
