Abstract

Abstract The dynamic behavior of the continuous stirred tank reactor is analysed and classified for a variable reactor residence time. Although earlier work, treating the bifurcation to limit cycles and steady states with changing Damköhler number, yields a complete description of the problem, the evolution of multiple steady states and limit cycles is much more bizarre as the reactor residence time varies. In addition, it is the reactor residence time which is most easily varied experimentally so that the present results are more readily compared with experiment. Plots are given to show the influence of system parameters on the reactor behavior.
