New: Simulation Files Database

PSE Community.org now features a simulation files database. Currently, we have example simulations for Aspen Plus, Aspen HYSYS, Aspen Energy Analyzer, Aspen Capital Cost Estimator, Pro/II, and ProMax. These are files associated with various textbooks featured on the site, but we are looking for your contributions!

Do you have simulations to share? If so, find out how you can contribute.

Here’s a sample of our recently posted CO<sub>2</sub> capture simulations:

CO2 Capture Simulation Examples

From the textbook chapter Process and Simulations for Solvent-based CO2 Capture and Syngas Cleanup by Thomas A. Adams II, Yaser Khojestah Salkuyeh, and Jake Nease, appearing in the book Reactor and Process Design in Sustainable Energy Technology, ed: Fan Shi.
