11 | |

12 | 1) Description: |

13 | |

14 | This directory tree contains the ASCEND IV code for library models and |

15 | example models. |

16 | |

17 | All the files in this directory hierarchy are Copyright |

18 | Carnegie Mellon University and distributed under the GNU |

19 | License version 2 unless OTHERWISE noted in an individual |

20 | file. |

21 | |

22 | All 'supported' models are in this top level directory. |

23 | Subdirectories are supported by their authors (if at all) and |

24 | not by the ASCEND Project at large. |

25 | |

26 | |

27 | 2) Files have 5 extensions: |

28 | |

29 | .a4s: A Script (tcl) for loading in the ASCEND script window. |

30 | .a4l: A library of reusable models. Each library contains enough |

31 | test models to be self-validating and self-documenting. |

32 | .a4c: Model code examples and demos. |

33 | .a4v: A file of saved values from a simulation. |

34 | .tcl: Auxillary TCL scripts for performing miscellaneous tasks |

35 | related to modeling that the user may wish to copy and |

36 | modify: for example, the user can create many permutations |

37 | on the set_intervals.tcl functions which specify a |

38 | time sampling schedule for the integrators. |

39 | |

40 | and 1 prefix |

41 | |

42 | z- normally of no interest to users, z files are models that |

43 | contain code testing 1 or more features of the system which |

44 | are not ordinarily tested in the course of routine distillation |

45 | modeling. |

46 | |

47 | |

48 | 3) A note on file names: |

49 | |

50 | We frequently develop alternative modeling strategies as part of |

51 | research. Since all our models live in one directory, several files |

52 | may have names starting with part of the author's name to distinguish |

53 | them from similar sets of models by another author. |

54 | Groups of related models may be kept in subdirectories. |

55 | |

56 | |

57 | 4) Subdirectories: |

58 | |

59 | Most subdirectories only exist at Carnegie Mellon, and are generally |

60 | full of experimental goop designed to frustrate the casual user. |

61 | They also contain legacy goop. Old style extensions in use for |

62 | these files include .s (now .a4s), .lib (now .a4l), .asc (now .a4c). |

63 | .values (now .a4v), .units (now defunct). |

64 | |

65 | ben: This directory contains the models presented in Ben Allan's |

66 | thesis. These models are somewhat less flexible than the |

67 | main models directory, but are generally less consuming of |

68 | computer CPU tim/memory resources. |

69 | |

70 | libraries: This directory contains *.lib files, containing model |

71 | libraries. There is a link between H_G_thermodynamics.lib |

72 | and thermo.lib. |

73 | |

74 | examples: This directory contains example files. Each example has a |

75 | *.asc and a *.s file. The *.s is a script for running the |

76 | models in the *.asc file. |

77 | |

78 | pending: This directory contains possible additions or changes to the |

79 | libraries and examples directories. The models in these |

80 | directories fall under the GNU license, but there are no |

81 | guarantees on how well they will work. A generic GNU |

82 | header is provided in each of the sub-directories to be |

83 | added to any models placed in pendings. |

84 | |

85 | westerberg This directory contains models that Art Westerberg is |

86 | developing. |

87 | |

88 | Of interest are the simpleUnits.AWW.a4s/c script and |

89 | models. These models allow one to develop simple |

90 | flowsheet models for stream mixing, splitting, pressure |

91 | changing (compressor, valve) while using rigorous physical |

92 | properties. The H2Process models use these models to |

93 | model a desktop hydrogen plant. |

94 | |

95 | The models in SiirolaJohn are also for modeling a desktop |

96 | hydrogen plant. |

97 | |

98 | The CelayaDemo models mimic the simple_FS models replaced |

99 | with rigorous units and physical property calculations. |

100 | |

101 | The ivp models are for solving initial value DAE models. |

102 | See the ASCEND Wiki description for this work at |
