This is a maintenance release of DESIGN II for Windows. This new release has the following changes:
1. Added new fuel cell sample flowsheets in c:\designii\samples\fuelcell.
2. Added vapor pressure calculation to bubble and dewpoint calculations
3. Added sonic velocity calculation for vapor phase of streams
4. Added the new calculations to the stream Calculation Options dialog for calculating sonic velocity of vapor streams and for
calculation of stream mixture vapor pressure. Enabled these new results for Excel Transfer along with the new critical property
results on active heating/cooling curves.
5. The detailed stream print mixture critical property calculations are now performed per the chosen thermodynamic equation of state
6. Added support for USB hardware keys in addition to the existing software locking, Parallel Port hard keys, Network locking and,
Name and Location locking. Please contact WinSim sales if you would like to upgrade your Parallel Port hardware key to a USB
hardware key (please note there is a fee and you must be on MSS). 7. Updated the printed and online Adobe Acrobat user manuals: the
DESIGN II for Windows User Guide, the DESIGN II / ChemTran General Reference Guide, and the DESIGN II Unit Module Reference Guide.
