The MATLAB® CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation is a unit operation implementation for which the calculations can be entered in MATLAB®. It has been developed and is maintained by AmsterCHEM.
The MATLAB® CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation functions in CAPE-OPEN compliant simulation environments that support version 1.1 thermodynamics or version 1.0 thermodynamics.
MATLAB® version 7.7 or higher must be installed. The MATLAB® CAPE-OPEN unit operation has been tested with MATLAB® versions 7.7, 7.8, 7.9, 7.10, 7.11, 7.12, 7.13, 7.14, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 8.3, 8.4, 8.5, 8.6, 9.0, 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, 9.4 and 9.5.
The MATLAB® CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation is at version 188.8.131.52 (October 15, 2018).
