Simulation of the reactive distillation column in DWSIM for esterification of acetic acid with methanol to form methyl acetate.
Txy Plot generated in DWSIM for Ethanol/1-Propanol at 1.01325 bar using the Soave-Redlich-Kwong model of thermodynamics.
DWSIM is a multiplatform, CAPE-OPEN compliant chemical process simulator for Windows, Linux, Android, macOS and iOS. It is available for download from here.
DWSIM allows chemical engineering students and practising engineers to model process plants by using rigorous thermodynamic and unit operations' models. Since DWSIM is free/libre and open source, they can see how the calculations are actually being done by inspecting the code behind during execution using free/libre tools available elsewhere.
DWSIM's powerful Thermodynamics engine is also available as a standalone dynamic link library (DLL) that can be linked against proprietary applications.
