Models a capillary consisting of N compartments. Explores sensitivity analysis and optimization and details the Monte-Carlo GUI for robust estimates of parameters, confidence limits and covariance.
N compartments in series simulate a partial differential equation with convection and diffusion. The relative dispersion of N compartments in series is 1/sqrt(N). There is not an exact relationship between the diffusion coefficient and the relative dispersion in the partial differential equation for diffusion and convection in a bounded domain with inflow and outflow at the ends. This model explores sensitivity analysis and optimization in a guided exercise. Details for using the Monte-Carlo graphical user interface are included both from the main TABS, Top Left. The information is also repeated in the Notes (Run Time GUI, Bottom, Notes TAB).
