Applicability: Cranium, Synapse (core versions 0315+)
Physical property values are necessary inputs for many
chemical and engineering software programs. To satisfy this need,
both Cranium and Synapse can export their data and estimates into
files that can be imported into numerous programs.
Currently, Cranium and Synapse can export data into the following
formats (all trademarks are the property of their respective
ASPEN Input File Format:
this format is used as the standard
input file format for the Aspen Simulator System. Aspen's
simulation tools provides extensive process simulation
capabilities for the chemical and petroleum industries.
this format is used by Chemstations' suite
of process simulation software. The CHEMCAD program suite
provides simulation tools for steady-state, dynamic,
and batch chemical processes.
Chemical Structure Images:
this format is used to write
image files for selected chemicals to a selected folder.
DIPPR (V01) Format:
this format is used by AIChE's DIPPR
database. The version 01 format is based on the Microsoft
Access database file structure.
ESI Fluid Table Format:
this format is used by Engineered
Software's suite of programs. These programs enables you
to design, analyze, and trouble shoot new or existing
fluid piping systems.
MATLAB Class Definition Format:
this format is used to
create script input files for the Matlab numerical
MKS JSON File:
this format option will generate a text
file containing an entity's properties written in
MKS's JSON format. This file can be used to exchange
data between users as well as for input into
MKS Knowledge Base:
this is the current format used
for MKS Knowledge Bases. Extensive knowledge on
elements, groups, materials, mixtures, techniques,
and references can be recorded. We recommend all
your physical property knowledge be stored in this
Mol File Format:
a mol file (molecular structure
file) contains molecular structure information
for a single chemical. This file format can be
input into many chemistry software
this format is used by the
MultiBatchDS simulation program. The program is
a comprehensive software tool for the similation
and optimal design of batch distillation columns.
SD File Format:
an sd file (structure-data file)
contains molecular structure information and
associated data on one or more chemicals. This
file format can be input into many chemistry
this format is used by Aveva's
SimCentral simulation program and other programs
in their simulation suite. SimCentral performs
rigorous mass and energy balances for a wide range
of chemical processes.
this format is used by ProSim's
Simulis thermodynamics server. Simulis provides
physical property values for ProSim's process
simulator. ProSim is a leading European chemical
engineering software company delivering process
simulation software and consulting services to
the energy, oil, gas, chemical, pharmaceutical,
food & beverage and other processing industries
SMILES (simplified molecular-input
line-entry system) is a standard format used to
represent the molecular structure of a single
chemical. This file format can be input into
many chemistry software programs.
this format is used by
ioMosaic's SuperChems software program. SuperChems
performs pressure relief design, chemical reactivity
assessment and management, consequence analysis,
and quantitative analysis.
MKS Text File Format:
this format option will generate a text
file containing entities and properties chosen from
the current knowledge base. This file will be able
to be opened by spreadsheet and word processing
programs for further processing.
this format is used by Honeywell’s
UniSim Design Suite. UniSim is an interactive process
modeling software package that enables engineers to
create steady-state and dynamic models for plant
design, performance monitoring, troubleshooting,
operational improvement, business planning, and
