CatKinCATKIN^{®} is an application for deriving expressions of overall rate equations and parameter estimation in complex heterogeneous catalytic reactions. It is a powerful tool that is based on uptodate numerical methods and Graph theory. Type of kinetic models: CATKIN works with heterogeneous chemical kinetics. Three groups of kinetic models are available:
Reactor Models CATKIN deals with mathematical models of bench scale fixedbed reactors. Two kinds of models are used: integral reactor; differential reactor. The model of the integral plug flow reactor is represented by ordinary differential equations. Models of a differential plug flow reactor or reactors with inner or outer recycle are algebraic ones. In both cases no programming is required
Experimental data Such experimental responses as concentrations of components in outlet flow (integral reactor) or reaction rates (differential reactor) can be used for creation of a model.
Simulation Uptodate numerical methods are utilized for solving stiff and nonstiff ordinary equations. Results of simulation can be presented as plots and tables.
Estimation With CATKIN you can estimate the best parameter values for nonlinear models. The comprehensive statistical treatment and automated methods of stability analysis and multiplicity checking are implemented.
