Simulation environments and simulation methodologies

Integrating a discontinuous dynamical system with DASSL  Low cost Single Board Heater System

We are working on strategies to build general purpose open source simulation environments capable of steady state and dynamic simulation. To this end, we are exploring the possibility of combining DWSIM, a sequential modular simulator and OpenModelica, an equation oriented modelling environment. These two complement each other, and together have the potential to form a good alternative to commercial simulators.

Education strategies

DWSIM based chemical process simulation on affordable FOSSEE Laptop

We are working on methodologies to spread good quality chemical engineering education in a big way, through live classes, virtual labs, Spoken Tutorials, SELF workshops, Textbook Companions, Lab Migration and low cost computing devices, such as Aakash and Netbook.
