SIMSCI Releases HEXTRAN Version 8.0.
BREA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 4, 1997--Simulation Sciences Inc. (Nasdaq:SMCI SMCI Senior Military Customs Inspector (US Army)
SMCI Super Micro Computer Inc. ) (SIMSCI) Thursday announced the release of HEXTRAN Version 8, its Windows-based heat transfer simulation and optimization program. Shipping of the release commenced Nov. 4.
HEXTRAN Version 8 includes full point access to the industry-standard thermophysical property package used in SIMSCI's PRO/II process simulator, enabling increased accuracy in modeling two-phase heat exchange systems. Integration of rigorous heat exchanger heat exchanger
Any of several devices that transfer heat from a hot to a cold fluid. In many engineering applications, one fluid needs to be heated and another cooled, a requirement economically accomplished by a heat exchanger. models from third-party suppliers HTRI HTRI Heat Transfer Research, Inc. and HTFS HTFS High Throughput File System has also been enhanced, combining the simulation of complex heat transfer networks with high-fidelity models of individual exchangers.
Dr. Victor Rice Victor Rice is a musician and producer from New York City. He is most noted for his work within the third wave ska genre of the 1990s through the early 2000s, as both a bassist and as a producer. , SIMSCI's vice president of technology and chief technology officer, said: "HEXTRAN is a leading tool for simulating the design and performance of heat exchanger networks. It provides critical information on optimizing the use of energy within the plant as well as determining optimum cleaning cycles on heat exchange systems."

HEXTRAN is a powerful, steady-state simulator that provides an accurate view of heat-transfer systems. It helps engineers design new systems, monitor current systems, optimize existing operations as well as prevent or solve heat transfer problems. The program rigorously simulates highly integrated processes and allows the engineer to monitor the performance of individual exchangers or an entire heat transfer network. HEXTRAN is compatible with Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows NT, and UNIX UNIX
Operating system for digital computers, developed by Ken Thompson of Bell Laboratories in 1969. It was initially designed for a single user (the name was a pun on the earlier operating system Multics). operating environments.
