Was published today on line a paper “Development of a chemical process modelling environment based on CAPE-OPEN interface standards and the Microsoft .NET framework” by Bill BARRETT and Jun YANG, respectively at US Environmental Protection Agency and University of Cincinnati.
Bill BARRETT is well known in CO-LaN since he has organized the 1st CAPE-OPEN US Conference.
The paper describes in details the architecture of a process modelling environment developed at US Environmental Protection Agency and implementing many of the interface specifications of the CAPE-OPEN standards.
