Chemical Engineering Simulation Freeware/Open source?
« on: December 02, 2006, 09:09:17 PM »
Is there a freeware or open source program for chemical engineers to design and simulate a Plant design?  An example of the type of software is Aspen 12.1 and ProII but I am pretty sure I can not afford these.

Hello pollution,

I personally have a program which I created (It took over 8 years to create), and I know of zero freeware/open source programs. 

Most people guard this info/data very well.

I wish you the best,

Eugene

AFAIK There isen't any..

The best thing you could do would be to write one youself... Probably using Octave as a starting point...



Cheers

You may wa nt to see Sim42, which was created as an Open source simulations/w. But now it is not active.

I was reading about OPENCheESE here... and I'm sorry about it's stopped.

Resuscitating the topic...  8)
I know about 2 opensource process simulators:
List of free process simulators:
and a copy of sim42 (dead free process simulator) is available here.

Hi all,

DWSIM 2.0 for .NET (Windows) and Mono (Linux and Mac) was released and includes a number of important new features like CAPE-OPEN compliancy, a new three-phase flash algorithm and a PC-SAFT Property Package. Below is a list of the changes since version 1.8:

.NET Edition (Windows):

- [NEW] Support for CAPE-OPEN Unit Operations, Property Packages (1.0/1.1) and Plugins (Flowsheet Monitoring Objects) (Windows only)
- [NEW] DWSIM Property Packages can now be exposed to external CAPE-OPEN compliant simulators (Windows only)
- [NEW] Inside-Out Three-Phase (VLLE) Flash Algorithm
- [NEW] PC-SAFT (without association term) Property Package
- [NEW] UNIFAC Property Package with Liquid-Liquid interaction parameters
- [NEW] Liquid-Liquid Extractor operation mode for the Absorption Column
- [NEW] Three-Phase separation mode for the Vessel
- [NEW] ChemSep database automatic loading (Windows only)
- [NEW] Watch window - allows property monitoring from different objects at the same time
- [NEW] CAPE-OPEN Unit Reports window - view output from CAPE-OPEN Unit Operations (Windows only)
- [NEW] Updated flowsheet drawing theme
- [NEW] 'Send Error Info' button added to the Unhandled Exception window (Windows only)
- [NEW] New version checking tool - informs the user when a new version becomes available and downloads the setup file (Windows only)
- [FIX] General bug fixes and speed improvements

To download binaries and sources for both editions, go to http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/dwsim/index.php?title=Main_Page

Thanks,
Daniel
