  2. 1-119-S-DairyFarming

    20 Sep 2020 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Rob Krueger

    A simple first order population growth model is presented.  The challenge is to produce a final differential equation which is the result of the difference or ratio of birth and death rates. This ratio is not immediately intuitive.

    This is a brief introduction to some Meeting Software Platforms for SCUDEM V 2020 Teams with links and a few comments. However, it is up to the individuals, what their institution provides, and personal choices, as to which platform they use.

  4. 9-002-S-GroundWaterFlow

    31 Aug 2020 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Jeremy Christman, Michael Karls, Kenneth H. Luther

    The goals of this project are to compare a conceptual one-dimensional groundwater flow model to observations made in a laboratory setting, and to discuss the differences. We derive the initial groundwater flow equation, and guide students through a solution. We describe the laboratory set up and...

    In this validation-oriented setup, the output waveform (function) of a operational amplifier type of differentiator circuit is determined analytically from the first order governing ordinary differential equation and the results are compared with the data acquired from analyzing the numerical...

  8. Numerical Simulation of Ebola Outbreak

    01 Aug 2020 | Presentations

    The Ebola virus disease is a serious infectious disease with the highest mortality rate that is considered as one of the most contagious diseases. Our goal is to construct a mathematical model to devise the optimal Ebola outbreak simulation, and through a numerical simulation predict the behavior...

  11. Modeling Guide and Resources for Student and Coach

    25 Jul 2020 | General Resources | Contributor(s):: William Clark, Anthony Stefan

    This is a Modeling Guide for SCUDEM V 2020 and a set of Useful Resources prepared by Anthony Stefan, Florida Institute of Technology, Melbourne FL USA and William Clark, Dixie State University, St. George UT USA serving as Science Gateway Community Institute and SIMIODE Summer 2020...

  12. 3-105-S-FrequencyResponse

    22 Jul 2020 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We describe the frequency response to a second order differential equation with a driving function as the maximum steady state solution amplitude and perform some analyses in this regard.

  13. 3-034-T-CarSuspensions

    14 Jul 2020 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Therese Shelton, Brian Winkel

    In this modeling activity, students examine the spring-mass-dashpot that is part of a car suspension. We model a "quarter car'', meaning a single wheel, and compare effects of different masses, spring constants, damping coefficients, and the angle at which the assembly is...

  14. 3-034-S-CarSuspensions

    14 Jul 2020 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Therese Shelton, Brian Winkel

    We examine the spring-mass-dashpot that is part of a car suspension, how the ride is related to parameter values, and the effect of changing the angle of installation. We model a "quarter car'', meaning a single wheel.

  15. 3-027-S-BobbingDropping

    10 Jul 2020 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We present two exercises from a differential equations text in which we ask students to model (1) falling object experiencing terminal velocity and (2) bobbing block of wood in liquid. We model the motion using Newton's Second Law of Motion and Archimedes' Principle.

  16. Laplace One Liner

    04 Jul 2020 | General Resources | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We offer a short Mathematica file in which we demonstrate the step by step commands for solving a second order, linear, constant coefficient, ordinary differential equation using Laplace Transforms and then we condense the entire set of instructions into one line of code - hence the name one liner.

    15 Jun 2020 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Tracy Weyand

    Students will analyze temperature variations in a room using Newton's Cooling Law. In this model, the only influence on the indoor temperature is the (oscillating) outdoor temperature (as we assume the heating/cooling system is broken). The main goal of this project is for students to set up...
