This paper describes the development and requirement specification of an open-source framework for multi-phase multi-component thermo properties in Modelica. The goal is to have a standardized interface to multi-component multi-phase fluids withaccess to external property packages in Modelica. This will make it easier to develop models for e.g. the process industry. The library uses a model based interface and implications of such a design are analyzed and compared with the traditional function based interface. The work has been carried out in collaboration with Modelon AB and VORtech within the umbrella of Methods and toolsas part of the CleanSky SGO project.
