A generalised cascade algorithm is described for the simulation of multiple effect evaporator systems with backward feed. This has been designed to operate with user-provided effect models of varying degrees of sophistication. The algorithm is based on the simultaneous solution of linearised forms of the effect models derived from a knowledge of the significant factors determining their performance. The coefficients of these linear equations are process. Two linearisations are described, the first being adequate for lumped parameter effect models and the second for detailed effect models with strong interaction between the two-phase fluid flow and heat transfer phenomena. © 1977.
