The Thermo SIG met from 10:30 am till 11:45 pm (Central European Time).

Agenda: develop specifications (description of methods) for additional interfaces (reactive equilibrium and compound slates)

Participants: Sergej BLAGOV (BASF), Jasper van BATEN (AmsterCHEM), Mark STIJNMAN (Shell Global Solutions), Michel PONS (CO-LaN)

Outcome: the new Use Case introduced at the last conference call to explain how the list of Compound Slates is made available to a Unit Operation, has been slightly revised in its wording. The definition of the Default Compound Slate has been added to the glossary. A quick revision of the wording describing the GetCompoundSlateCollection method was made before addressing in more details the GetCompoundSlateInfo method belonging to the same interface, i.e. ICapeThermoCompoundSlateCollection. The signature of the GetCompoundSlateInfo method has been defined. This method permits to access the value of a Compound Slate attribute, one attribute at a time. Among the attributes, mandatory or optional, one finds the type of a Compound Slate (typically true or apparent) as well as its reactive or non-reactive nature.

Next conference call is scheduled for March 28, 2017.
