A Short Course on the “Development of CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation models” is
organized on November 4, 2007 in Salt Lake City. It is sponsored by the
CAPE-OPEN Laboratories Network (CO-LaN) in collaboration with the US
Environmental Protection Agency. This hands-on course where you create
process model components useable in any process simulator will be given by
Dr Lars von Wedel from AixCAPE e.V. (Germany) and Dr Bill Barrett from US
Environmental Protection Agency. Both have extended experience in CAPE-OPEN

Lars von Wedel is managing director of the AixCAPE consortium. He started
work in the CAPE-OPEN project in 1997 and has continued to work in CAPE
software integration with CAPE-OPEN standards since then. He has developed
several CAPE-OPEN compliant components, some of them being used in chemical
engineering industries.

William Barrett is a chemical engineer with the US Environmental Protection
Agency. Since 2001 he has worked with the US Environmental Protection
Agency, Sustainable Technology Division on applications of Computer-Aided
Process Engineering aimed at improving the environmental performance of
chemical processes

Highlights of this short course include: an introduction into the CAPE-OPEN
technology, interactions between the simulation environment and the model
components, development of a simple mixer unit operation that implements and
utilizes the CAPE-OPEN technology, and other related issues.  The full-day
session will be hands-on and is intended to give attendees a practical
understanding of CAPE-OPEN.

- Overview of the CAPE-OPEN technology.
- Key features of CAPE-OPEN. 
- The role of property packages and unit operation models in a simulation.
- How to use third-party CAPE-OPEN objects in your simulation environment.
- Hands-on creation of CAPE-OPEN model objects in C++, Visual Basic or C#.
- Use of the created object in a CAPE-OPEN compliant process simulator.
- What to anticipate in future developments.

This course will help engineers involved in process modeling, including
educators or researchers, to understand the fundamental aspects of CAPE-OPEN
technologies that constitute the basis of current calculation tools.

Registration to this Short Course is through AIChE at
