Welcome

Welcome to the SciLab CAPE-OPEN Thermo Import. This is a SciLab package that allows you to import and use CAPE-OPEN version 1.1 thermodynamic Property Packages inside SciLab, for thermodynamic and physical property calculations as well as thermodynamic phase equilibrium calculations.

This package does not implement any thermodynamics; it is merely the glue between existing CAPE-OPEN version 1.1 Thermodynamic Property Packages and SciLab. Various CAPE-OPEN thermodynamic Property Packages are available. For example, the free CAPE-OPEN flowsheet simulator COCO comes with a Property Package Manager called TEA.

Getting started

If you did not register the CAPE-OPEN Thermo Import tool with SciLab during installation, you can do so by running "Register with SciLab" from the start menu. This step is also required after installation of a new version of SciLab. This registration step will add a command to the scilab.start configuration file.

If you do not wish to automatically load the CAPE-OPEN Thermo Import tools, you can skip the registration. To use the CAPE-OPEN Thermo tool, you will need to explicitly load it. To do so, run the capeOpenThermoImportInit.sci SciLab script in the installation folder, for example by running:
exec('c:\Program Files\AmsterCHEM\AmsterCHEM\SciLab CAPE-OPEN Thermo Import\capeOpenThermoImportInit.sci',0);
from the SciLab command line.

A quick reference of commands is available by running
capeOpenQuickRef()

This help file contains the full documentation. It can be started from SciLab by running
capeOpenHelp()

Requirements

Scilab version 5.02 or higher must be installed and running on your system; it is available from http://www.scilab.org/.

SciLab CAPE-OPEN Thermo Import allows for using CAPE-OPEN version 1.1 thermodynamics. It will therefore only cooperate with CAPE-OPEN thermodynamic Property Packages that support this CAPE-OPEN version.

Acknowlegdements

SciLab CAPE-OPEN Thermo Import was developed by AmsterCHEM.
