Authors: Kurt Strand, Håvard Nordhus, Peter Singstad and Magne Hillestad,
Affiliation: SINTEF and Statoil
Reference: 1989, Vol 10, No 3, pp. 135-141.

Keywords: Dynamic simulation, integration algorithms, steady state solvers, simulation software

Abstract: It is demonstrated how efficient numerical algorithms may be combined to yield a powerful environment for analysing and simulating dynamic systems. The importance of using efficient numerical algorithms is emphasized and demonstrated through examples from the petrochemical industry.
