XPSIM Version 3.01

What is new

 

This document summarizes new features available in version 3.01 of XPSIM (eXtended Process Simulation) officially issued on July, 18 2022.

 

This version is developed for x64-based PC running on Windows 11 or Windows 10 operating systems.

 

In addition of a number of minor corrections applied to the steady-state and dynamic engines as well as to the windows interface, the following improvements are available:

 

A.   Steady state simulation

 

All the modifications and correction issued for the 3.00 initial version and following modifications have been incorporated and consolidated.

 

Unit Operations

The simulation of shell & tube heat exchanger (HXSHTB) is now available.

 

B.   Dynamic Simulation

 

All the modifications and correction issued for the 3.00 initial version and following modifications have been incorporated and consolidated.

 

The Dynamic Simulation Option has been used in the following fundamental studies published this year:

 

Raimondi L., Gas/Liquid Two-Phase Flow in Pipes: Slugs, Classical Flow-Map, and 1D Compositional Simulation, SPE Journal, 2022.

 

Raimondi L., CCS Technology CO2 Transportation and Relief Simulation in the Critical Region for HSE Assessment, Chemical Engineering Transactions, Vol. 91, 2022

 

The first article presents how slug flow can be simulated without the use of slug tracking options.

 

Unit Operations

A SITE definition operation and a Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger (HXSHTB) have been added.
