What is a .SUM file?

File Extension: .SUM File Type: Garmin Checksum File Description: A .SUM file is a model file that is created and used by the Scilab CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation application. This application is designed to help users perform calculations related to specific steps in a chemical process, known as unit operations. These operations can involve either chemical transformations or physical changes. The .SUM file contains a model of a unit operation along with its associated metadata, which includes information that describes the model's properties and characteristics.

Programs that can open this file: The primary program that can open a .SUM file is AmsterCHEM's Scilab CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation. This software allows users to input and calculate unit operations using Scilab, a programming environment for scientific computations.

More Information: Unit operations are individual steps within a larger chemical process, each of which is designed to perform a specific function, such as mixing, heating, or separating chemicals. The Scilab CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation application integrates with Scilab to provide a platform where these processes can be modeled and calculations can be performed efficiently.

Note: To use the Scilab CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation application effectively, you must have Scilab installed on your computer. Scilab provides the necessary tools and computational capabilities required by the application to model and solve the unit operations.
