Simulation Software Provides Flexibility To Model Applications

The newest version of SimSci-Esscor's Inplant simulation software 4.1 simulates multiphase flow in plant utility and relief networks is said to provide flexibility to model applications ranging from a depressuring study of a single vessel to the design and rating of a complete cooling water network for an entire refinery or petrochemical plant. The latest version incorporates SimSci-Esscor SIM4ME Portal, which enables the use of Inplant software via Microsoft Excel interface. The SIM4ME portal constructs a bidirectional communication link between the steady-state simulator, SimSci-Esscor's Inplant, PipePhase or PRO//11 simulation software and a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. The SIM4ME Portal enables developers to create an Excel spreadsheet that is Inplant aware, allowing users to execute an Inplant simulation from within an Excel software application.
