Principles of problem solution searching, definition of modelling methods and simulation methodology, model, system. Modelling in technical branches, physical model, degrees of model abstraction, problem analysis and algorithm of solution. Technique of natural and physical modelling. Deterministic simulation models.
Realization on a deterministic model. Digital simulation models. Utilization of simulation for production planing, distribution and transport.
Utilization of the EUREKA program system, formulation of the technical problem.
Data handling - data preparation, data storage, files correction.
Extreme searching methods, analysis, formulation and task setting of optimization method. Tasks from the building practice- mixing problem, process of decision.
The part of lectures is followed by training, which has a computational character. In the framework of the training computational means used in the area of experiment planning, production technology are presented. Physical modelling - AREA, HEAT, FLUENT, EUREKA.
