I'm trying to reproduce in Matlab the model of a continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR) that I've gotten for a project.
The model is written in the state space and uses some dimensionless values, including a "heat transfer coefficient"
β. Here's the table:
I've been trying to investigate in chemical process books to figure out how to calculate this coefficient (I imagine the numerator is Area times Height, but no idea about the terms in the denominator), but I've found nothing. I think even the order of magnitude of this coefficient would be useful, so I don't mess up when entering the equations. Thanks in advance for your help.
