The Siemens division Industry Automation has expanded Comos, the software solution for complete plant management throughout the entire lifecycle of an industrial plant, with functions for productive front-end engineering and design (FEED). Comos FEED supports the user in the early planning of a plant.
Comos FEED supports the user in the early design of a plant.
As reported by the market analysts ARC Advisory Group, USA, even at the very early planning stage of an industrial plant project, some 80% of the total costs are defined in the front-end engineering and design phase. "With the new FEED functionality in Comos, plant designers can work more quickly and more flexibly and also improve the quality of their work. This allows, for example, a more precise cost calculation for a plant", said Marcus Elo, product manager Comos Process, Siemens Industry Automation Division.
New import functions in Comos FEED for data from simulation programs support the user and help to speed up planning and make it more reliable. This allows the batch import data from multiple simulations to be integrated in Comos at the same time. Other functions such as the partial import also save time allowing previously defined data from simulations to be applied. An additional interface has also been developed, that now allows the application of data from ProMax. This means that as of now, the data from seven process simulators can be imported and further processed. This underlines the open system architecture of Comos and provides users with even greater flexibility. To continue planning, the data can be taken from the simulation programs and is then available for further processing for flowcharts and block diagrams in Comos.
The Comos software solution is modular and its integrated data management allows effective, holistic development in a system over the entire lifecycle. The data is both consistent and transparent in all planning phases. This also applies to the early stages of plant design and ensures high quality in the design of the process. Here, the integrated data and document revision mechanisms provided by the Comos FEED software module allow a controlled and efficient design procedure.

Conventional light microscopes cannot distinguish structures when they are separated by a distance smaller than, roughly, the wavelength of light. Superresolution microscopy, developed since the 1980s, lifts this limitation, using fluorescent moieties. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research have now discovered that graphene nano-molecules can be used to improve this microscopy technique. These graphene nano-molecules offer a number of substantial advantages over the materials previously used, making superresolution microscopy even more versatile.
Microscopy is an important investigation method, in physics, biology, medicine, and many other sciences. However, it has one disadvantage: its resolution is...
Nanooptical traps are a promising building block for quantum technologies. Austrian and German scientists have now removed an important obstacle to their practical use. They were able to show that a special form of mechanical vibration heats trapped particles in a very short time and knocks them out of the trap.
By controlling individual atoms, quantum properties can be investigated and made usable for technological applications. For about ten years, physicists have...
An international team of scientists, including three researchers from New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), has shed new light on one of the central mysteries of solar physics: how energy from the Sun is transferred to the star's upper atmosphere, heating it to 1 million degrees Fahrenheit and higher in some regions, temperatures that are vastly hotter than the Sun's surface.
With new images from NJIT's Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO), the researchers have revealed in groundbreaking, granular detail what appears to be a likely...

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are valuable for a wide variety of applications. Made of graphene sheets rolled into tubes 10,000 times smaller than a human hair, CNTs have an exceptional strength-to-mass ratio and excellent thermal and electrical properties. These features make them ideal for a range of applications, including supercapacitors, interconnects, adhesives, particle trapping and structural color.
New research reveals even more potential for CNTs: as a coating, they can both repel and hold water in place, a useful property for applications like printing,...
