Brand/Model:
Athena Visual Workbench (Stewart and Associates Engineering Software, Inc)

Description/use:
Athena Visual Workbench (Stewart and Associates Engineering Software, Inc) is a powerful software package, ideally suited to model catalytic reactions, chemical reactors, diffusion and adsorption processes etc. Models with several space domains with different boundary conditions in which different sets of partial differential and/or algebraic equations apply are solved numerically. This is interesting for different physical domains (gas/liquid channels, porous diffusion layers, and membrane). Athena Visual Workbench not only allows solving such complex systems, but is also ideally appropriated to determine system parameters via parameter estimation routines, for model discrimination, optimization and even experimental design.
