Simulating dynamic tanks in EMSO (Part 3) Email This Post Print This Post

This is the last post of series simulating dynamic tanks using EMSO simulator. The first one shows the direct implementation of the dynamic tanks case using the modeling language of EMSO that applies concepts of object-oriented languages (part 1). The second one used (part 2) resources of EMSO GUI to link models to figures and create a block diagram of the process from the connection among them.

Simulating dynamic tanks in EMSO (Part 2) Email This Post Print This Post

This is the second part of our text “Simulating a dynamic tank in EMSO”. The first part shows the basic theory about EMSO modeling language applied to model a dynamic tank. The code to a single tank was implemented and expanded to a set of tanks in series.

COCO Email This Post Print This Post


COCO (CAPE-OPEN to CAPE-OPEN) is a free-of-charge CAPE-OPEN compliant steady-state simulation environment consisting of the following components:

  • COFE – the CAPE-OPEN Flowsheet Environment is an intuitive graphical user interface to chemical flowsheeting. COFE has sequential solution algorithm using automatic tear streams. COFE displays properties of streams, deals with unit-conversion and provides plotting facilities.
