What is an FSD file?
Flowsheet document created and used by the Cape Open to Cape Open (COCO) simulation environment; contains a chemical flowsheet, which may include streams, unit operations, controllers, and flow constraints; also stores information used to configure the flowsheet, such as stream types, color schemes, flowsheet options, and property packages.
The COCO simulation environment consists of several components and utilities that allow you to model chemical processes. One of the components is the CAPE-OPEN Flowsheet Environment (COFE), which is a GUI to chemical flowsheeting and allows you to save and open FSD files. FSD files can also be used as CAPE-OPEN unit operations, which means you can use them inside COFE or other simulators.
