Open Source Chemical Engineering Related Softwares
Monday, July 05, 2010
As a chemical engineer, after knowing the basic and fundamentals of a subject, we may use certain softwares to speed up calculation, analysis and even decision making. Without doubt chemical engineering related software are gaining importance and hence it is imperative to share them here so that all of us can use and apply them. I found a forum that shares a magnitude of great chemical engineering software (I got to know about this great collection from vinithbejugamchemicalengineering.blogspot.com who runs an informative chemical engineering blog).
The forum shares open source chemical engineering softwares such as:
Cantera - Cantera is an open-source, object-oriented software package for problems involving chemically-reacting flows.
InnoSim - InnoSim is a free suite for physical properties estimation and process equipment design and rating. It is intended for use by students, scientists and engineers interested in chemical engineering and the related industries.
Calflur - Caflur is a tool for analyzing chemical reactors. It can generate a HTML file with tables and graphics of Residence Time Distributions. It can calculate conversions for both linear and non-linear systems, with and without flow model; and the parameters for some non-ideal flow models (tanks in series, axial dispersion and combined models).
MesoRD - MesoRD is a tool for stochastic simulation of reactions and diffusion. In particular, it is an implementation of the Next Subvolume Method, which is an exact method to simulate the Markov process corresponding to the reaction-diffusion master equation.
Well those are just 4 of them. There are lots more of open source chemical engineering software. Visit the forum and learn more:
Have you downloaded my free "Choosing Alternative Fuel" Ebook? If not, then please download it here. It's Free and on top of getting the free ebook, you'll get eCourse on Alternative Fuel. It's a good and easy way to add more valuable information to yourself.
