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.

A mathematical model has been developed for an enzymatic process with kinetically controlled synthesis. Model reduction and detailed system analysis have been undertaken to examine the main properties of this enzyme reaction system. Optimal experimental design (OED) is developed to obtain the experimental conditions that will generate the most informative measurement data for parameter estimation. Both single-input and multiple-inputs optimisation strategies have been investigated to determine the best intensity levels of control inputs. The results demonstrate that parameter estimation quality can be improved through proper model-based experimental design.
