Numerical Solutions II

Numerical Solutions II

Pieter Schmal, Process Systems Enterprise

In the second Technical Webinar on Numerical Solutions, we focus on robustness and speed. First we will explain what causes ill-conditioning and what are the most effective ways to improve the conditioning through different ways of scaling. We will discuss the difference between sequential and simultaneous solvers. We will also discuss some elements of model analysis to aid in debugging numerical issues. Finally we will look at ways to increase the speed of simulation.
