Guidelines for Flowsheeting

Guidelines for Flowsheet Development

  1. Select any compound from the available list in DWSIM Database. Click here to get the list of compounds.
  2. Build a DWSIM flowsheet for the process development of selected compound.
  3. Proper naming should be done for streams and unit operations such as:
    1. Material Streams should be named as S-01, S-02, etc.
    2. Energy Streams should be named as E-01, E-02, etc.
    3. Unit Operations could be named suitably. For example,
      • Distillation Columns should be named as DC-01, D-03, etc.
      • Heat Exchanger should be named as HE-01, He-02, etc.
      • Reactors should be named as RC-01, RC-02, etc.
  4. Insert a master property table in the Flowsheet Area displaying important properties for the important matrerial streams.
  5. Use. dwxml or .dwxmz extension for uploading the flowsheet, as required by DWSIM.

Guidelines for Writing Brief Abstract for the Project

  1. The abstract should be a maximum of 2 pages.
  2. It should communicate the contents of the flowsheet
  3. Following sections should be included in the abstract:
    1. Background
    2. Description of the flowsheet
    3. Results
    4. Conclusion and Recommendations (If any)
  4. Custom unit systems used in flowsheet other than SI must be specified.
  5. The abstract should be submitted in pdf format.
