Qualitative interval (or fuzzy) simulation of complex continuous processes: Fitting information availability and accuracy requirements M.R. Vescovi," L. Trave-Massuyes,* M.M. Lamego,' C.

Firstly, we discuss modeling characteristics of such an important class of physical systems that includes chemical, nuclear, siderurgical and other industrial process
