    Although the basic principle of distillation is simple, modelling columns with many trays leads to large models with complex overall behavior. In the past, this has encouraged the development of many shortcut models for process design purposes. However, with the present availability of cheap and powerful computer hardware and software it has become possible to utilize rigorous static and dynamic models (see preceding chapter) for off-line use.
