DDBSP: UNIFAC Calculation Software

DDBSP-UNIFAC is a low-cost stand-alone package that allows to estimate activity coefficients, excess enthalpies and excess heat capacities using UNIFAC and mod. UNIFAC for systems with up to 50 components. It contains UNIFAC and mod. UNIFAC group fragmentations as well as the latest published UNIFAC and mod. UNIFAC parameters. For members of the UNIFAC Consortium, a much larger and improved set of parameters is available.

The following figure shows the main dialog of the program:

 

Calculation results can easily be printed or copied to the clipboard. The program documentation can be found on this page
