Chapter 3. Computer-Aided Modelling Methods and Tools
The development of models for a range of applications requires methods and tools. In many cases a reference model is required that allows the generation of application specific models that are fit for purpose. There are a range of computer aided modelling tools available that help to define the model, generate the model and provide a range of toolboxes to aid model analysis, solution and results generation.
This chapter describes the basic model structures that commence with a definition of the balance volumes and then discuss the conservation equations, constraints and constitutive equations. To illustrate these concepts a number of examples are used. These include models of ...
