A project funded by the U. S. Dept. of Energy is underway at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to develop an advanced-software computing system for chemical-process engineering. This system, named ASPEN (Advanced System for Process Engineering), is intended to meet the needs of process engineers in the 1980s and will play an important role in the development of new fossil-energy processes. Programs of particular interest included those for simulation, design, equipment, sizing, cost estimation, and economic evaluation, as well as service routines for physical-property calculations, data regression and equation solving. This is the first of a series of articles that will list computer programs of special interest to chemical engineers.
