Newest version of SimSci-Esscor's INPLANT simulation software 4.1, a program that simulates multiphase flow in plant utility and relief networks provides flexibility to model applications ranging from a depressuring study of a single vessel to the design and rating of a complete cooling water network for an entire refinery or petrochemical plant. The latest version incorporates SimSci-Esscor SIM4ME Portal, which enables the use of INPLANT software via Microsoft Excel interface. The SIM4ME portal constructs a bidirectional communication link between the steady-state simulator, SimSci-Esscor's INPLANT, PIPEPHASE or PRO//11 simulation software and a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. The SIM4ME Portal enables developers to create an Excel spreadsheet that is INPLANT aware, allowing users to execute an INPLANT simulation from within an Excel software application.
