Chapter 13. Macroscopic and Compartmental Models

Learning Objectives

After completing this chapter, you will be able to:

  • Define the concept of a backmixed unit and the assumptions involved in it.

  • Perform steady state and transient analysis of a backmixed unit.

  • Show that transient analysis is useful to assess the level of mixing in the system.

  • Couple backmixed units to form a compartmental model for a reactor or for a large-scale system.

  • Use compartmental models in engineering analysis of complex systems.

  • Formulate macroscopic models for two-phase systems.

This chapter elaborates on the principles of macroscopic modeling introduced in Chapter 3 and shows additional applications. As described earlier, in macroscopic analysis, the control volume ...
