The multi-media instructional materials are intended to provide self-paced instruction on process simulators for use in the
core courses in chemical engineering, including “Material and Energy Balances,” “Thermodynamics,” “Heat Transfer,”
“Separations,” “Reactor Design,” and “Process Design.” Currently, they provide coverage of ASPEN PLUS, Version 11
and HYSYS.Plant Version 3.0.1.
The materials are presented in two interconnected formats:
(a) An encyclopedia-like source of reference materials on the subjects listed below, delivered on many subtopics in the form of
instructional modules. When using the CD, the subject areas in the table below are accessed in a pull-down menu, each of
which expands into its listing of subtopics. Double-clicking on its title accesses the instructional material for each subtopic.
CONTENTS OF REFERENCE MATERIALS
Principles of Process Flowsheet Simulation
Separators
Heat Exchangers
Pumps, Compressors and Expanders
Chemical Reactors
Physical Property Estimation
Dynamic Simulation (HYSYS only)
Tutorials

(b) A series of tutorials that are used in a self-paced fashion as part of the core chemical engineering courses, with which the
student builds up his or her capability with one of the commercial flowsheet simulators, while reinforcing his or her
knowledge of the chemical engineering principles. These tutorials use the two simulators.
These resources (Reference modules and tutorials) need to be installed on a hard disk from the CD using the intsaller. The
software consists of SHOCKWAVE files, which can be accessed from a network server using Microsoft Internet Internet
EXPLORER (Version 6.0 or higher is recommended). In addition to the pull-down menu and the index, the instructional
material for each subtopic can be accessed from the tutorials designed to augment the core courses in chemical engineering.
INSTALLATION and SETUP INSTRUCTIONS

1. Install the software, by double clicking on the install.exe icon:


This program assists you to install the software onto your hard disk.
2. On completion of the installation, the installer program runs a setup module, whose purpose is to check that drivers for
Macromedia Shockwave 8, Acrobat Reader and QuickTime 5.0, and the special fonts required by the multimedia, are installed
on your computer. If the setup module detects that any of these are missing, you will be prompted to install them, as shown
below. To install the drivers and fonts, follow the instructions that appear on the screen. Once all of the required driver and
font installations are completed, click on the "Done" button, to continue.
After installation of the drivers, the following menu is displayed:

The menu provides navigation instructions, suggestions for first-time


users and access to the multimedia itself. Note that if "Run multimedia"
is activated, Windows XP equipped with the new Service Pack 2 will
issue a warning as shown on the right. Click on "Run" to operate the
software.
When operating the encyclopedia, navigation is effected by using buttons of the lower bar, as indicated by pressing the “Navigation
Tips” option on the Setup menu, which causes the frame below to be displayed. Note that the encyclopedia is operated in one of three
modes: ASPEN PLUS, HYSYS.Plant or MATLAB, and the Contents and Index pop-up menus are specific to each mode selected.
By pressing “Tips for New Users” on the menu, the following screen is presented to the user. First-time navigation hints
are provided for users of the two commercial simulators, which are accessed by pressing the symbol of the selected
simulator.
For example, suggestions for first-time ASPEN PLUS users are given in the following frame:
The instructions continue onto a new page on pressing the “next” button.
For first-time HYSYS users, the recommendations are as follows:
Furthermore, a page describing the new features for HYSYS users is displayed on pressing the “next” button.
For first-time MATLAB users, the recommendations are as follows:

SIMULATION FILES AND FOLDERS

The following pages list simulation files and folders, supplied in support of the textbook, Product and Process Design Principles, by
Seider, Seader, and Lewin (Wiley, 2004). The simulation files cover the following programs:
The Aspen Engineering Suite, including ASPEN PLUS Version 11, BATCH PLUS, and Aspen IPE
HYSYS, Version 3.0.1
GAMS
MATLAB Version 5.3 and above
Profitability Analysis Spreadsheet
The directory: /Simulation Files/Aspen Eng. Suite contains the following files and folders:

The ASPEN directory on this CD-ROM contains all of the files and folders listed below. Two tables are provided. The first
lists the files and folders referred to in the textbook (Seider et al., 2004). The second lists the files used in preparing the ASPEN PLUS
multimedia instruction modules on the CD-ROM (Lewin et al., 2003). Many of the files were prepared using ASPEN PLUS Version
9. When using these files, you may choose to maintain complete upward compatibility to Version 11 or to use the new pure
component databanks.

The profitability analysis spreadsheet by Holger Nickisch is in the file, Profitability Analysis-1.0.xls. As indicated in the file, Section
17.8.pdf, this spreadsheet must be opened with a user name and password. Built-in values are “student” and “engineer”. The files
below, MCB.xls and MCB-IPE.xls files, must be loaded into the Profitability Analysis-1.0 spreadsheet. After entering your user name
and password, in the Save/New dialog box, check Load Existing Analysis. This produces the Browse for Folder dialog box, on which
you select the appropriate file. When working within the Profitability Analysis-1.0 spreadsheet, this procedure can be carried out by
pressing the Save/New button on the Menu. Report files, for example, MCB_Report.xls and MCB-IPE_Report.xls, are generated by
pressing the Create Report button on the Menu. These can be opened directly by clicking on the file name. See Section 17.8 for
additional details.

MINIMUM HARDWARE SPECIFICATIONS

Version 2.2 of the multimedia software requires installation on a hard disk. After hard disk installation, the multimedia will
execute under WINDOWS 2000 and WINDOWS XP operating systems. The software requires Internet Explorer to operate
(Version 6 or higher is recommended). Since it intended that the multimedia CD-ROM will be used in parallel with one of the
supported simulators, it is strongly recommended that a Pentium-III or better processor be employed, with 128 MB of RAM, and
a 17" screen.

UPGRADES
As additional modules are developed in support of the usage of ASPEN PLUS, HYSYS.Plant, and MATLAB, we will post free
upgrades to the multimedia on our website: http://www.seas.upenn.edu/~dlewin/CD_ROM_updates.htm .

TECHNICAL SUPPORT
We will provide technical support as related to the operation of the CD-ROM. If you have problems, please send e-mail to:

pse_mmm@tx.technion.ac.il

Please note: Questions concerning the operation of the ASPEN PLUS and HYSYS.Plant simulators and MATLAB, that are not
covered by our instructional materials should not be addressed to us. Please refer to User and Reference Manuals and Help
Screens. If help is still needed, you might consider using the Hotlines provided by Aspen Tech and Mathworks.
