Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A detailed dynamic model has been developed for the molecular weight distribution (MWD) of styrene bulk polymerization in a continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR). The moment techniques are applied to formulate the MWD parameters based on the Schultz-Zimm distribution. In order to provide a general model for MWD control, the B-spline approximation has been introduced into the dynamic MWD modelling and the scanning least-square algorithm has been used for parameter estimation of the B-spline weights model. Under simulation environment, this model has been proved to be efficient for feedback MWD control.
