Property Calculation – Understanding Accumulation Percent
When a Property is added with a Percent value, you can also calculate the total of the property in compositions using an ‘Accumulation Percent’ calculation.
Example – VOC Percent
A property VOCPC is added with a value type of Percent:
The calculation tab shows this is required to be calculated for compositions, using the ‘Accumulation Percent’ method. The property based on is ‘VOCPC’ and the calculation source is ‘Physical Composition’:
This means when determining the calculated result for a formulation:
A simple formulation example follows, for Citral 10% DPG. The VOCPC has been entered for the physical raw materials of Citral and Dipropylene Glycol:
The calculated result for VOCPC of the formulation is 10%.
The Maths of Accumulation Percent
The calculation works as follows:
