The next chapter in the Continuous Modeling module provides a tutorial that expands upon the Reservoir 1 model used in the guideā€™s Tutorial module. Chapter 3 describes typical industries and applications for continuous simulation such as scientific, engineering and business; it uses models provided with ExtendSim as illustrations.The final chapter of the Continuous Model- ing module discusses concepts specific to continuous simulations and give additional tips when building models.
The How To module that starts on page 564 includes chapters on topics relevant to all types of modeling, including creating a custom user interface, using mathematical and statistical func- tions, and statistically analyzing models.
