Simulation is a tool that uses mathematical models to represent physical phenomena through experimental or numeric computational techniques. It allows emulating reality to predict the operation of certain systems and anticipate problems.
In this way, it facilitates the task of identifying what type of responses may occur in given situations, preventing exposure to risk for people, equipment, structures, environment, etc.
- Simulation using the discrete element method (DEM).
- Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation.
- Simulation by finite element method (FEM).
- Simulation of processes using continuous or discrete methods (Dynamic Simulation).
