whereas the diagram shown when the previous example (MUSE Simulation) was started reflected the input data initially supplied.1-16 Example 2 You will now see the Process Geometry form again as shown in Figure 1. you will find you can access the Geometry input. you will see that the Exchanger Diagram can be requested.14. This is because in Design mode there is no need to specify any Geometry input. Observe that nearly all the items are blank. 1-16 www. Look for Geometry under the Input menu. Figure 1. Notice that the amount of information displayed on the form has reduced.13. switch off Basic mode. then look at the Output menu. This reduction of input fields is applied throughout the main input forms.please inform us. and that the view now has only one tab instead of three. See Figure 1.com EMail:cadserv21@hotmail.com The document is for study only. 5.if tort to your rights. and click OK. This diagram is based on the results of the calculation.
