Index of Examples that came with Aspen Plus Release 12
The examples are buried deep inside the Aspen Program Files folder. You can use the open file dialog box to find them. As with the case of the examples from the older versions, we convert them into a language input file so we can focus on how to generate the simulations. (Even if you don't know the input language, you can scan the file quickly to pick out what you may need to do and where you want to set up the input within the GUI/DataBrowser.)

The list below is not complete. We just pull the ones good for introduction and a handful of other examples for a perspective view.

Simluation Templates
When you create a new simulation, you are offered a choice of many "systems." They are really thermodynamic properties templates. In anticipation of all the chemical components involved, Aspen put together a much more rigorous package of thermodynamic methods including binary interaction parameters specific to mixture component pairs. So if you are curious how thorough Aspen is, we picked three examples. Their converted inputs are listed below.

More detailed descriptions can be found via Aspen Plus Help. Retrieve the Help Window. Enter "template" in the Index field.

English, Metric General set up (essentially a blank simulation) for English and metric units
Reformer Catalytic reformer
Air Air processing, metric units
BTX Petrochemical benzene-toluene-xylene processing

These application files were found in

pfdtut Hydrogenation of benzene. Used numeric stream labels. This is the file that we modified to make our own tutorial.
flash An incomplete input! It is fixed and renamed thermo0 and put inside the tutorial subdirectory. It is now a simple input file which one could use to see how things are like with liquid activity coefficient models.
