GoldSim Webinars

We offer free, monthly webinars to present GoldSim features and applications. Upcoming webinars are listed below. If you would like to be placed on our Webinar Mailing List to be reminded every month of the upcoming webinar, contact us.

All webinars are recorded (and posted to the site within a day or two), and these provide an excellent resource for learning about GoldSim features and applications.

Materials and video recordings of past webinars are available on our Webinar Archive Page.

    Next Webinar: Effectively Checking for Mass Balance

    This webinar demonstrates how to effectively employ a mass balance accounting for a typical material or flow balance model. It is important to accurately track the sum of all inflows, outflows and change in storage in the system so the model can be validated. You will see how to create a warning system in the model that takes into account numerical roundoff error. Another important factor in this method of mass balance checking is that you account for changes in a cumulative manner so that errors that might occur during unscheduled events might also be accounted for. We will also discuss ways to better organize your model to make it easier to close the mass balance. After watching this webinar, you will be better equipped to develop valid flow and material balance models for your projects.
