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 Stream output from distillation columns could be named as Bottoms and Distillate.
    2. Energy Stream could be named properly as R-Duty and C-Duty.
    3. Unit Operations could be named suitably such as Distillation Column, Heat Exchanger.
  4. 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.
