Section 3 Overview

Please use these videos together with Section 3 of the Basic SysCAD Tutorial, which is distributed with the SysCAD full install.

All SysCAD projects use the following underlying information:

  • A Species Database: This stores the thermodynamic and physical data of compounds;
  • The Configuration File: This allows the user to configure the following data:
    The minimum and maximum temperature and pressure ranges;
    A suite of unit operations. For example, for material handling projects, where energy balance is not important, a user may choose not to include heat transfer group of models;
    Selection and customised display of compounds used in the project.

In Section 2 we used a pre-defined database and project configuration file (with extension cfg) to create the project. In this module, we will take a look at how to modify these files to include some additional data.
