1.1 Overview
Included with your MUSE software are a number of example input files
that can acquaint you with the program. These cases are fully defined
and ready to run. You can simply open the cases and run MUSE to see
the type of output that can be generated. This Getting Started chapter
will step you through one of these example cases, as a brief introduction
to the MUSE architecture, input options and available output
information.
A complete set of results for the sample input files is provided in a
separate location for Quality Assurance purposes. See Chapter 2 - QA
Examples for details.
Chapter 7 - Examples, of the MUSE Reference Guide consists of a set of
tutorials that you can follow to build different types of MUSE examples.
By working through these examples you will familiarise yourself with the
software data entry methods and the various input and output views.
Before looking at and running the sample input files, it is important for
you to know that MUSE can perform several main types of calculations.
When you begin modelling your own exchangers you will have to make
the choice as to which calculation type you require. The examples in the
MUSE Reference Guide provide greater detail on the calculation mode
options, but for the purposes of this Getting Started example, they are
briefly described below:
Calculation Types
Design - PFIN

For designing a heat exchanger to meet a heat load duty and


pressure drop limits, which you specify.

Simulation - MUSE

Determines the heat load, pressure changes and stream outlet


conditions that will occur with a specified exchanger, with given
stream inlet conditions.

Thermosyphon MUSE

Determines the flowrate and duty of a specified exchanger,


operating as a thermosyphon. You specify the head of liquid
during flow through the exchanger.

Layer by Layer MULE

This is like Simulation, but is performed for every layer in the


exchanger, rather than for every stream.

Crossflow - MUSC

Simulation of crossflow exchangers, with one or more passes.

1-3

1-4

Example 1

The names MUSE, MULE, PFIN and MUSC against the various
calculation modes refer to different calculation engines within the
overall MUSE program.

1.2 Example 1
In this first example you will take a brief look at how an existing dataset
can be reviewed, run and the outputs accessible.
1.

Start MUSE. This can be done several ways and will depend on how
you set up your desktop. However, the two main ways are:
Click on the Start menu, then Programs, then HTFS, and select
the MUSE 3.30 command.
Figure 1.1

1-4

Selecting MUSE from within Windows Explorer.

Getting Started

1-5

Once the splash screen has cleared you will see the MUSE desktop and over the
top of this is the Welcome view see Figure 1.2.
Figure 1.2

From this view you can select to create a New file or open an Existing file. If you
have used MUSE previously, the project file you have worked with will appear in
the Recently Used Project File list, making it easy to get back to files you were
recently working on.

2.

Select an Existing file, and click the Existing button.

3.

You are presented with an Open File view. To open the file for this
Getting Started, go to the:
C:\PROGRAM FILES\HYPROTECH\HTFS\DATA directory.

(This is the default directory, the exact location may be different if you
changed the MUSE destination directory during installation.)

1-5

Example 1

See Figure 1.3 for the Open File view.


Figure 1.3

Getting Started

4.

1-7

For this example, select the file QMUSE1.MUI. You will know when
the file has been loaded because the Exchanger Diagram will
appear within the MUSE desktop.
Figure 1.4

If you cannot remember where a file is located, there is a Find File utility
to help you. Select Find File from the File menu or use the keyboard
short cut by pressing CTRL F.

Open Icon

Once MUSE has started you can open other files by selecting Open from
the File menu. To use the Welcome view again, select Start Project from
the View menu. However, in either case you can only have one project
active at any one time. For most common activities there are short-cuts.
To open a file you can either click on the Open icon or use the keyboard
short cut by pressing CTRL O.

1-7

1-8

Example 1

Now look a bit closer at the project file you have opened:
1.

Click on Input in the menu bar.

The Input menu shown below gives access to all of the input data. The
menu itself is divided into the different types of data you need to
describe the heat exchanger and the conditions under which it will
operate. These include different aspects of geometry, process conditions
and physical properties.
Figure 1.5

You may see minor differences in the views in your version of MUSE,
compared with the figures in this manual, which may have been
generated on a pre-release version of MUSE 3.30.

2.

1-8

Select the Geometry input form (see Figure 1.6) and you should see
inputs which give the exchanger metal, number of exchangers in
parallel, orientation and so on. This view is typical of most views in
that the data is entered either in a text field or via a drop- down
menu. The drop-down list shows a list of possible inputs where you
simply select the appropriate item.

Getting Started

1-9

Figure 1.6

If at any point you are not sure what input you want or something is not
clear, you can press F1 and get context sensitive help. If you select the
rear head type and press F1 you can see a listing of all the available rear
head types.

3.

Process Icon

Now look at process data by selecting Process from the Input menu
or by clicking on the Process icon.

Figure 1.7 shows another form of input view where the input items are
arranged in a spreadsheet format. If the data do not fit on the view, a
scrollbar allows you to access the other input items. The spreadsheet
view is used when data are required several times, in this case for each of
the streams in the exchanger.

Physical Properties Icon

1-10

Finally, you will look briefly at the physical properties input by


selecting Physical Properties from the Input menu or by clicking on
the Physical Properties icon.

Getting Started

1-11

The initial view, Figure 1.8, shows the top level information about each
stream.
Figure 1.8

Depending on the type of physical property data you are working with,
you can either enter the property data for the stream directly or enter
data for components and allow MUSE to perform vapour liquid
equilibrium and mixture calculations. All of the physical property data,
are managed through this view.
Since this is an existing case all the necessary data have already been
entered.
5.

Run MUSE by doing one of the following:

Click on the Run icon in the toolbar.


Select the Run menu and then Calculate All.
Press F4.

Run Icon

MUSE now displays a status view that reports progress of the run.

1-11

1-12

Example 1

When the run completes there are three possible outcomes and
corresponding outputs will be displayed.

Successful run with no fatal errors and no warnings - a view


showing the Results Summary appears.
Successful run with no fatal errors but with one or more warnings
- the Results Summary appears together with a list of the
warnings associated with the run.
Failed run due to fatal errors - the Error Log is shown with a
description of the errors that have occurred.

In this case you should see the Results Summary which shows the given
stream inlet conditions, and the calculated stream outlet conditions. See
Figure 1.9.
Figure 1.9

1-12

Getting Started

1-13

There are many different outputs that can be viewed from the Output
menu, as shown in Figure 1.10.
Figure 1.10

Notice from this menu the different types of output available. The first
group of outputs are all special Windows outputs, that is to say they are
special views of the data typically in the form of graphs or tables.

1-13

1-14

Example 1

6.

Select Temperature Profiles from the Output menu to see a table of


the stream temperature (Figure 1.11). This could alert you to any
unusual behaviour.
Figure 1.11

You will see there are other sets of outputs under the Output menu. The
final group of outputs are files generated directly by the calculation
engine. They are all text files and contain different aspects of results
generated. Of these, the one that you are most likely to use is the
Lineprinter Output, which contains all of the important information,
should you want to retain output.

1.3 Example 2
In Example 1 you will have seen that there is a lot of data that can be
entered when simulating an exchanger. To design an exchanger requires
much less data. For all calculation types you can reduce the amount of
input you must consider by using Basic Input Mode.
1.

Select Open from the File menu and select example QPFIN1.MU1.
As this is a design case you will initially be shown the Process input
(as shown in Figure 1.7 for the previous example).

2.

Open the Start up view by selecting Start up from the Input menu.

Figure 1.12

The Start up view is also shown whenever you create a new file. It is here
where you must specify the type of calculation that MUSE will perform.
Notice that this is a Design case.
All the main input views have keyboard short-cuts. For instance the
Start up view is SHIFT F1; Physical Properties Data is SHIFT F12.

3.

Check the Basic Mode checkbox. Then, select OK.


1-15

1-16

Example 2

You will now see the Process Geometry form again as shown in Figure
1.13. Notice that the amount of information displayed on the form has
reduced, and that the view now has only one tab instead of three. This
reduction of input fields is applied throughout the main input forms.
Figure 1.13

Observe that nearly all the


items are blank.

4.

Look for Geometry under the Input menu. You will find it is greyed
out. This is because in Design mode there is no need to specify any
Geometry input.

5.

If you go back to Start up under the Input menu, switch off Basic
mode, and click OK, you will find you can access the Geometry
input.

If you Run this case, then look at the Output menu, you will see that the
Exchanger Diagram can be requested. See Figure 1.14. This diagram is
based on the results of the calculation, whereas the diagram shown
when the previous example (MUSE Simulation) was started reflected the
input data initially supplied.

This concludes the MUSE Getting Started chapter. Continue examining


MUSE Input and Output options on your own, or examine any of the
other sample cases. Once you have completed your MUSE session,
simply select the Exit icon or Exit from the File menu to close MUSE.

QA Examples

2-3

2.1 Overview
A set of seven sample MUSE cases, including both input and output files
are provided with MUSE for Quality Assurance (QA) purposes. As a
check that you have installed MUSE correctly, you should run the input
files and compare your results files with those provided.
MUSE files have a file extension .MUx (where x is an indicator of the
type of file (input or one of the various outputs). A full listing is given in
the Help Text.
On installation, the QA files are stored in a subdirectory QADATA of the
directory containing the main MUSE folder. The sample cases have file
names QMUSE1, QMUSE2 and QPFIN1, and file extensions .QAx
instead of .MUx. The different extensions are used to ensure that you
cannot accidentally overwrite the QA files when running MUSE.
Copies of the QA input files, with the standard input file extension .MUI
are also put in the \HTFS\DATA directory by the installation procedure.

Creating Output for Comparison

2.2 Creating Output for Comparison


Using the QMUSE1 example, a typical check on MUSE installation
would be as follows:
1.

Copy the QMUSE1.QAI file from the \HTFS\MUSE320\QADATA


directory to some other directory, for example \HTFS\DATA.

2.

Rename the file, and give it the extension .MUI for example
MYTEST1.MUI.

3.

Start MUSE, you will see the Welcome view, click on Existing and
select HTFS\DATA\ MYTEST1.MUI.
Figure 2.1

2-4

4.

Run MUSE with this case.

5.

Compare the results files from your run with the results files
supplied with MUSE.

6.

Checks may be repeated with the other QA files supplied.

QA Examples

2-5

2.3 Comparing Outputs


Your calculated results are files named MYTEST1.MUx, in directory
\HTFS\DATA and these need to be compared with the supplied results
files QMUSE1.QAx in directory \HTFS\MUSE320\QADATA.
Remember, the QADATA files
supplied with MUSE have the
extension .QAx.

The most important comparisons are the .MUV and .MUL files but other
files can be compared as well. The .MUV file is the Brief Output and is a
relatively short file. You can do the comparison using a file difference
utility, or by printing off the two files and looking for differences.
If the files are identical, (except for the run time and input file name
recorded in the output), the QA check is successful. If the files differ
slightly, but only in the fourth or fifth significant figure of one or two
variables, the QA check on this example is also successful. If there are
more significant differences, consult Hyprotech.
