Table of Contents

(partial) Complex chemical equilibria calculations with the thermodata system, the thermodynamics workbench. Computations using MTDATA of metal-matte-slag-gas equilibria, energy requirements for the hydrogen gas production from decomposition to heated asbestos tailings. Heat and mass transfer simulations on a personal computer. Heat transfer tutor and caster for educational computing and simulation. Modelling made easy: the synthetic intelligence (SI) approach. Expert systems as a process operator assistance tool. The use of computer models in an integrated approach to plant design, process optimization and process control.


The symposium is comprised of four sections: (1) Thermochemical Computation and Data Banks: Calculations of Thermodynamic Properties of Metallurgical Solutions. (2) Pyrometallurgical and Process Applications: Some Applications of Equilibria Calculation to Copper Pyrometallurgical Processes. (3) Heat and Mass Transfer Applications: Simulation of Microsegregation in Binary Alloys and (4) Expert Systems and Artificial Intelligence: Real Time and Artificial Intelligence Software for Chemical and Extractive Metallurgy.


For mechanical engineers, researchers and metallurgists.
