Residence Time Distribution: Interactive Simulation
This simulation will run on your browser. Try to predict the behavior when a parameter changes before using a slider to change that parameter.
Simulation: Residence Time Distribution Function of a CSTR in Series
Try to answer these questions before determining the answer with the simulation. We suggest that you write down the reasons for your answers.
- As the number of CSTRs becomes very large, what shape does the RTD approach?
- For 3 CSTRs in series, is the maximum in the RTD greater than or less than the average residence time for the system of CSTRs?
