COMPUTER SIMULATION ANALYSES DESIGN OF INDUSTRIAL COMPLEXES

The advantages of and methods of implementing computer simulation modeling are reviewed, and three sample applications are presented, including a deterministic model of hydraulic transients for long-distance pipelines; a stochastic model used to estimate pipeline reliability as a function of electrical-storm outages; and a stochastic model of an LNG complex consisting of a liquefaction plant, a tanker fleet, and two regasification facilities.
