Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The main goal of the course is to present to students the possibilities of modeling and simulation in the analysis of complex dynamic systems and their processes as well as synthesis of control systems of technological processes. Attantion is also paid to modeling and simulation of fluid flow phenomena based on the CFD program.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Project work


The course is a compulsory subject for the branch creating computer models of dynamic systems and programming tools for simulation, in the raw material industry. It contains, among others,: Phase of the Simulation Process, Mathematical Models of Continuous Dynamic Systems, Methodology of Dynamic Mathematical Models Synthesis per Chained Relations, Methods of Computer Models Programming, Sensitivity Analysis of Simulation Model, Simulation systems.
