Welcome to COCO.
COCO is a CAPE-OPEN compatible simulation environment. It consists of the following 4 parts:
|COFE: CAPE-OPEN Flow-sheeting Environment
|TEA: Thermodynamics for Engineering Applications
|COUSCOUS: CAPE-OPEN Unit-operations (Simple)
|CORN: CAPE-OPEN Reaction Numerics
The following additional utilities are available:
|Water: IAPWS-97 based steam and water property package
|CORK: the CAPE-OPEN Registry Kit
|OATS: out-of-process thermo server and CAPE-OPEN logging tool; includes unit operation logger tool COULIS
|COFE.xlt: a Microsoft ExcelTM spread-sheet template designed to include a COFE document in an Excel workbook
|JUIcE: an editor for unit operation icons
|TERNYP: TERNarY Plugin. Creation of phase diagrams, property plots and residue curves of ternary systems
|COFEStand: COFE stand-alone command line based flowsheet solver utility
|ConfigureTEA: a utility application to configure and maintain TEA property packages
|ConfigureCORN: a utility application to configure and maintain CORN reaction packages
|CUP: COCO Update utility for online software updates
Third party components that are shipped with COCO:
|ChemSep LITE: ChemSep is a program for performing multi-component separation process calculations
|COSMOtherm LITE: COSMOtherm is a program for the quantitative calculation of solvation mixture thermodynamics based on quantum chemistry
|CAPE-OPEN type libraries: type libraries required for CAPE-OPEN development and CAPE-OPEN based inter-process communication
|EPA WAR and .NET CAPE-OPEN: WAR plugin and .NET CAPE-OPEN libraries (External link)
|Excel Unit Operation: unit operation using Microsoft ExcelTM as calculation engine (External link)

COCO is developed and maintained by AmsterCHEM.
- Jasper van Baten: principle developer
- Richard Baur: developer and beta tester
- ChemSep: Harry Kooijman and Ross Taylor
- COSMOtherm: Frank Eckert / Cosmologic
Harry and Ross provided us with the pure component data bank and ChemSep's thermodynamic model library. TEA's thermodynamic property calculation methods are largely based on ChemSep's model library.
