Parameter Estimation for Nonideal Reactor Models

Model ID: 12183


Real reactors can be modeled as combinations of ideal reactors. In this example two ideal CSTRs with interchange are used to model a real reactor with one highly agitated region and another region with less agitation. Two parameters, relating the volume and exchange rate of the two regions, need to be found by comparing the model results to experimental tracer data. Using the Parameter Estimation feature in the Reaction Engineering interface makes this an easy task.
