Abstract

The major objectives will lead to a creation of framework that combines all the strengths of AMUSE’s complicated calculations, well-established commercial system process package and ISOPro’s flexible parameter optimization modules. Development of the process simulation code can be done using the solvent extraction process at Argonne National Laboratory in collaboration with the research team from Mechanical Engineering Department at UNLV.

Research accomplishments:

  • Integrated the ASPEN-Plus process model with the ISOPro system engineering modeling package, developed by the UNLV team.
  • Tested the simplified system process integration using the ISOPro package.
  • Generated complete version of the ISOPro package user manual and tutorial.
  • Made an interface to interact with ASPEN-Plus through the ISOPRO Package
