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: back to the enthalpy balance topic within the “Reaction Engineering background” section. Diagram has been drawn explaining how enthalpy of system evolves between before and after reaction takes place. The diagram was inserted in version 0.69 of the Reaction Package interface specification document available to CO-LaN Members on the shared drive of the “CAPE-OPEN IDL’ project.
