Modeling Scenarios (1-5 of 5)

  1. 1-136-S-MarriageAge

    11 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Tracy Weyand

    Students will build and analyze a model of the fraction of people who are married (for the first time) by a certain age. This model comes from a paper by Hernes and, in this project, is compared to another model used by Coale.These models are first-order ordinary differential equations (which...

  2. 6-045-S-CholeraTranmission

    19 Apr 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Urmi Ghosh-Dastidar

    A recent cholera outbreak in Haiti brought public attention to this disease. Cholera, a diarrheal disease, is caused by an intestinal bacterium, and if not addressed in a timely manner may become fatal. During the project described here, the students will learn how to solve and address a...

  3. 3-150-S-ItsABlastFurnace

    13 Aug 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Kurt Bryan

    This project uses the steady-state heat equation to model the temperature distribution in an industrial furnace used for metal production, for example, a blast furnace.The heat flow is assumed to be steady-state, so that only an elementary ordinary differential equation (ODE) is needed, and...

  4. 1-143-S-PopulationModelVariationsMATLAB

    17 Feb 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Bill Skerbitz

    Students will walk through a detailed derivation and review of basic population models (exponential and logistic) to create and understand variations of those models while learning some basic MATLAB functions for working with differential equations.  They will also work with other utilities...

  5. 1-141-S-M&MGameRevisited

    27 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Mehdi Hakim-Hashemi

    In this project students will learn to find a probability distribution using the classical M&M game in SIMIODE.
