Parameter Estimation for Nonideal Reactor Models
Application ID: 12183
Real reactors can be modeled as combinations of ideal reactors. In this example the so-called "Dead zone model" is utilized.
Two ideal CSTRs with interchange are set up to model the real reactor. One CSTR represents the highly agitated region and the other the less agitated region. For this, 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.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
