About the authorSteve Murtha formed Simulation Tools in 1991 to deliver the power of simulation to training and education professionals. The tools are frameworks and components, based on object-oriented design patterns, that are used to build simulation-driven animations for web sites.
He has extensive experience in modeling control systems and processes in the refining, chemical and related industries. As a co-founder and Vice President of R&D at Atlantic Simulation, he designed the company's real-time simulators that are used for training process operators.
His first professional exposure to simulation was as a user while designing molecular sieve hydrogen purifiers at the Linde Division of Union Carbide. He served on the board of the Eastern Regional Council of the Society for Computer Simulation and has presented several papers on implementing real-time simulators on microcomputers.
Steve earned a Masters Degree in Engineering from the MIT School of Chemical Engineering Practice. He has a Bachelors Degree in Chemical Engineering from Manhattan College, where he graduated magna cum laude with membership in Sigma Xi and Tau Beta Pi.
