Unformatted text preview: Page 1 of 6 MATLAB Review + Simulation CHE 361 A vertical cylindrical tank is constructed with holes in its side such that the flow rate of liquid out of the tank is proportional to the height of liquid in the tank. The height of the tank is 2.00 meters and the circular cross section (A) is 1 m2. When the liquid inlet flow (Fi) is constant at 2.00 m3/min, the tank is initially half full (at a steady state for t < 0). If the inlet flow is suddenly changed to 5.00 m3/min, how much time will elapse, to the nearest second, before the liquid overflows from the top of the tank? A dh(t ) = Fi (t ) − Fo (t ) = Fi (t ) − Kh(t ) dt or simplifying for the derivative only, with h(t = 0) = h0 initial condition dh Fi − Kh = = the RHS of the ODE dt A Using Laplace transforms, we solved for the general case with Fi (t ) = Fi for all t ≥ 0 K Kt − Kt − Kt ⎞ −A ⎞ Fi ⎛ F i ⎞ −A t F i ⎛ F i Fi ⎛ A h(t ) = + ⎜ h0 − ⎟ e = −⎜ − h0 ⎟ e = h0 e + ⎜ 1 − e A ⎟ K⎝ K⎠ K ⎝K K⎝ ⎠ ⎠ With A = 1.00 m, h0 = 1.00 m 2 , Fi = 5.00 m3 / min and K = 2.00 m 2 / min h(t ) = 2.5 − 1.5e −2t for h(t ) ≤ H = the height of the tank = 2.00 m Here is a simple MATLAB program h_of_t.m to show how the ODE for the height of liquid in the tank can be solved numerically using the built-in MATLAB function ode45 and then use MATLAB commands to make a plot of h(t). as a solid line with circles at calculated points.

A second example P3tank.m showns how this can be done and then creates a second plot where the numerical solution of the ODE simulation is compared to the analytical solution found using the Laplace transform by plotting both results as curves of h(t) . In the Command Window we simply type the name of the program file (without the .m extention). Each “input” command allows us to specify a number at “run time”. >> P3tank Enter constant feedflow at t >= 0 (m^3)/min (5.0) : 5 Enter duration of simulation in minutes (1.0) : 1 >> Page 3 of 6 Here are two plots corresponding to two common situations: Figure 1 = Plot a model curve versus points of data. Figure 2 = Plot simulations based on two models. In this example there is only one model, the linear ordinary differential equation, but it is solved 2 ways = an analytical solution using Laplace transforms and a numerical way using the MATLAB built-in function “ode45”. We use a MAIN program file with name “P3tank.m” and a function file with name “dhdt.m”.
