access to advanced thermodynamic calculations through the Excel spreadsheet
interface. It integrates the OLI aqueous simulation engine and database
with the flexible structure of a standard spreadsheet. Applications
that are simple or sophisticated can be created to satisfy needs
ranging from simple calculators of stream parameters to titration
curves or surveys and sophisticated process simulations that are
integrated with plant information management systems.
The ability to link with data provided from diverse sources in a spreadsheet interface
is one of the most attactive capabilities of the calcAQ. Data obtained from a database or from other calculations embedded in the spreadsheet
are easily used as input to the thermodynamic calculation functions.
Changes to this input data can be automatically reflected in the
results of the calculations. All of the features of Excel (standard
functions, plotting, formatting, pivot tables, etc.) are also available
The flexibility of the layout is important. Workbooks
can be organized in almost any manner desired. Complex series of
calculations can be simplified by structuring the workbook layout.
Data entry and key result values can be shown on one worksheet
while the complete results are available on other worksheets and
the details of the calculations on another. Data can even be stored
in other workbook files if necessary.
Turner Technology will work with clients to customize
the interface to their needs, to integrate calcAQ with their current data management mechanisms, or to develop applications unique
to their situation.
