ICAS combines computer-aided tools for modelling, simulation (including property prediction), synthesis/design, control and analysis into a single integrated system. These tools are present in ICAS as toolboxes. During the solution of a problem, the user may move from one toolbox to another to solve problems requiring more than one tool. For example, in process synthesis, one option is to define the feed stream, then analyse the mixture (analysis and utility toolbox), then generate a flowsheet (synthesis toolbox), then optimise the flowsheet (design toolbox), and finally verify the design (analysis toolbox). From any toolbox it is possible to invoke the simulation engine to perform steady state and/or dynamic simulation for batch and/or continuous process operations. From the synthesis toolbox, it is possible to invoke the solvent design tool (in design toolbox) if a solvent is needed for a specific separation task. There is also a utility toolbox, which determines properties, phase diagrams, etc., which can be used by the other toolboxes or by the user to analyze the behavior of the specified system. “ICAS documentations” (PEC02-14) provides information on installation of ICAS, tutorials at basic and advanced levels and other useful information such as a list of dll-files copied during installation and new features of the latest version of ICAS.
For those who are interested in using the latest version of ICAS, ICAS 12.0 can now be downloaded or obtained by contacting the CAPEC secretary. CAPEC consortium members can directly download the latest version from the "member company website" (if you do not have an user-id and password, contact the Web Manager or CAPEC secretary for more details).
ICAS is an Integrated Computer Aided System consisting of a number of toolboxes that helps to solve a wide range of problems in an efficient manner. The following toolboxes are available in ICAS 12.0: CAPEC Database; ProPred (pure component property estimation); TML (mixture property estimation and model library); ProCAMD (computer aided molecular design); PDS (process dsign studio for distillation process synthesis/design); BRIC (batch operation modelling and simulation); MoT (modelling toolbox); ModDev (tool for model generation); ICAS-Dynsim (dynamic simulation engine); ICAS-SIM (steady state simulation engine); ICAS-Utility (various types of phase diagrams); SoluCalc (solubility calculations of organic solids). In addtion, a number of EXCEL-based software using ICAS-tools have also been developed (ICAS-PAT, SustainPro, VPPD-Lab, PC-SAFT, CAPEC-DB-Manager).
