GoldSim: Using Simulation to Move Beyond the Limitations of Spreadsheet Models
A Dynamic Simulation Approach to Reliability Modeling and Risk Assessment
This paper explains how GoldSim can be used for reliability modeling and probabilistic risk assessment. It provides sufficient detail such that the reader can obtain a good understanding and overview of what the software can actually do (and how it does it). The paper is intended to clearly explain its GoldSim's capabilities in simple language. Readers interested in learning more details are pointed to additional sources.
Integrated Water Resources Management Applications Using GoldSim
Energy Applications Using GoldSim
This short paper provides a brief overview of GoldSim, with special emphasis on applications in the energy industry. It discusses how the software can be used for creating realistic models of engineered and environmental systems in order to carry out risk analyses, evaluate potential environmental impacts, support strategic planning, evaluate the reliability of engineered systems, and evaluate alternative policies and plans.
Mining Applications Using GoldSim
GoldSim has been used at mines around the world for mine water management studies, to support environmental compliance and permitting, and for evaluation of mine development, expansion, remediation and closure plans. This paper provides a brief overview of GoldSim, with special emphasis on mining applications.
Strategic Planning Applications Using GoldSim
This paper provides a brief overview of GoldSim, with special emphasis on strategic planning simulations. It discusses how the software can be used to carry out risk analyses and evaluate alternative policies and plans.
Radioactive and Hazardous Waste Management Applications Using GoldSim
GoldSim is particularly well-suited (and was originally developed) to support evaluation of existing and proposed radioactive waste management facilities. Powerful contaminant transport features allow nearly any kind of natural or man-made environmental system to be simulated. This paper provides a brief overview of GoldSim, with special emphasis on radioactive waste management applications.
