The Thermo SIG met from 10:30 am till 12:30 (Central European Time).

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

Outcome: The conference call was entirely dedicated to progressing the review of the entire Reaction Package interface specification. Sections on chemical phase equilibrium and on kinetic reactions have been developed in the “Reaction Engineering background” paragraph. Some adjustments made to the section on chemical equilibrium.The focus remains on providing a summary of the main theoretical concepts that are of relevance to the interfaces addressing reactions in CAPE-OPEN. Progress is captured in version 0.68 of the ChemicalReactionsInterfaceSpec document available to CO-LaN members in the repository of the “CAPE-OPEN IDL” project.
