Chemical Process Simulation has long been used as a design tool for choosing between various process options. The CAPE-OPEN project, funded by the European Union, has undertaken the task of defining a common application framework for computer-aided process engineering (CAPE). The project provides a middleware standard for chemical process simulation component models. This work builds upon the CAPE-OPEN framework to create a class library that can be used to develop process modeling components (PMCs) that may be used in any CAPE-OPEN-compliant simulation package.
