Develops, maintains and promotes thermodynamic interface specifications
• Maintain and manage existing interface specifications (revisions to improve design, performance/speed and robustness based on user input)
• Assess and prioritize on expansions of interface specifications
• Help organizations to develop implementations of the thermodynamic standards
The Thermo SIG was started on September 16, 2002 with Werner MERK (Dow) leading the SIG.
Deliverables for 2014 – 2016 (approved by Management Board on August 14, 2014)
- Maintain existing Thermodynamic and Physical Properties interface specification documents for both v1.0 & v1.1: update of the corresponding “Errata & Clarifications” documents. Catch-up with backlog of issues raised so far (2015).
- Suggest an end of support strategy for 1.0 (e.g. no more E&C for 1.0, no more revision of 1.0 specification document) (2016).
- Support developers of CAPE-OPEN-based software components providing or consuming thermodynamic data. Interface implementation.
- Complete the ongoing revision of Chemical Reactions interface specification as part of v1.1 Thermodynamic and Physical Properties interface specification.
- Approval of the proposed revision of the Petroleum Fractions Interface specification document (after UNIT SIG provides necessary input)
- Consolidate improvements to v1.1 towards a new 1.2 version. Interface design.
- Provide support for proper representation of thermo interfaces in CAPE-OPEN Object Model (after M&T SIG provides necessary input). Middleware design.
Thermo SIG is meeting almost every week to work on the Chemical Reactions interface specification
Thermo SIG is delivering a report on its activities within the CAPE-OPEN Annual Meetings.
October 2015 – September 2016.
