ASPEN is a widely used process simulator. Cranium and Synapse can generate ASPEN input files. These input files can contain both physical property data and parameters for physical property models. Once these files are generated, commands within ASPEN can be used to read the contained physical property values into ASPEN databases.
The following window displays an example ASPEN input file. The application also generates a ".xlog" log file that details the sources and procedures used to generate the exported physical property values.

|List of chemicals selected to be exported.
The following input file was generated by exporting seven chemicals (acetic acid, cyclohexanol, ethanol, ethyl acetate, n-hexane, toluene and vinyl chloride).

|A the log file generated by Cranium and Synapse documenting the data values and estimation methods used to generate the values exported to the input file.
Please see our video demonstrating how to export an ASPEN input file. The video uses Cranium to generate estimates for several physical properties. These estimates, and other physical property data and parameters are then written to an ASPEN input file.
