DWSIM is a free and open source chemical process simulator for modeling and simulation of chemical processes. It is a multiplatform, CAPE-OPEN compliant process simulator for Windows, Linux, Android, macOS, and iOS. Built on the top of the Microsoft .NET and Mono Platforms and featuring a rich Graphical User Interface (GUI), DWSIM allows chemical engineering students and chemical engineers to better understand the behavior of their chemical systems by using rigorous thermodynamic and unit operations' models with no cost at all.

The FOSSEE project at IIT Bombay (https://fossee.in) has been promoting DWSIM, and other FLOSS, such as Scilab, Python, OpenFOAM, eSim, Osdag, OpenModelica, R, Drupal and Linux, and open source hardware, such as Arduino and OpenPLC. FOSSEE is also funded by NMEICT, MHRD.
