Optimization of crude distillation system using aspen plus

Today I found quite rare article on using chemical engineering software package Aspen plus. Four scientists of Department of Chemical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, Guwahati 781039, India had published a paper on Chemical Engineering Research and Design journal on Optimization of crude distillation system using aspen plus and it is indepth analysis of Effect of binary feed selection on grass-root design. Their primary objective was to provide and build up guidelines available as general rules of thumb for the grass-root design of crude distillation unit (CDU) using binary crude mixtures.
