# Lumped Rate Model Without Pores¶

## Group /input/model/unit_XXX - UNIT_TYPE = LUMPED_RATE_MODEL_WITHOUT_PORES¶

`UNIT_TYPE`

Specifies the type of unit operation model

Type:string

Range:\(\texttt{LUMPED_RATE_MODEL_WITHOUT_PORES}\)

Length:1

`NCOMP`

Number of chemical components in the chromatographic medium

Type:int

Range:\(\geq 1\)

Length:1

`ADSORPTION_MODEL`

Specifies the type of binding model

Type:string

Range:See Section Binding models

Length:1

`REACTION_MODEL`

Specifies the type of reaction model of the combined bulk and particle volume. The model is configured in the subgroup \(\texttt{reaction}\).

Type:string

Range:See Section Reaction models

Length:1

`INIT_C`

Initial concentrations for each component in the bulk mobile phase

Unit:\(\mathrm{mol}\,\mathrm{m}_{\mathrm{IV}}^{-3}\)

Type:double

Range:\(\geq 0\)

Length:\(\texttt{NCOMP}\)

`INIT_Q`

Initial concentrations for each bound state of each component in the bead solid phase in component-major ordering

Unit:\(\mathrm{mol}\,\mathrm{m}_{\mathrm{SP}}^{-3}\)

Type:double

Range:\(\geq 0\)

Length:\(\texttt{NTOTALBND}\)

`INIT_STATE`

Full state vector for initialization (optional, \(\texttt{INIT_C}\) and \(\texttt{INIT_Q}\) will be ignored; if length is \(2\texttt{NDOF}\), then the second half is used for time derivatives)

Unit:\(various\)

Type:double

Range:\(\mathbb{R}\)

Length:\(\texttt{NDOF} / 2\texttt{NDOF}\)

`COL_DISPERSION`

Axial dispersion coefficient

Unit:\(\mathrm{m}_{\mathrm{IV}}^{2}\,\mathrm{s}^{-1}\)

Type:double

Range:\(\geq 0\)

Length:see \(\texttt{COL_DISPERSION_MULTIPLEX}\)

`COL_DISPERSION_MULTIPLEX`

Multiplexing mode of \(\texttt{COL_DISPERSION}\). Determines whether \(\texttt{COL_DISPERSION}\) is treated as component- and/or section-independent. This field is optional. When left out, multiplexing behavior is inferred from the length of \(\texttt{COL_DISPERSION}\). Valid modes are:

Component-independent, section-independent; length of \(\texttt{COL_DISPERSION}\) is \(1\)

Component-dependent, section-independent; length of \(\texttt{COL_DISPERSION}\) is \(\texttt{NCOMP}\)

Component-independent, section-dependent; length of \(\texttt{COL_DISPERSION}\) is \(\texttt{NSEC}\)

Component-dependent, section-dependent; length of \(\texttt{COL_DISPERSION}\) is \(\texttt{NCOMP} \cdot \texttt{NSEC}\); ordering is section-major

Type:int

Range:\(\{0, \dots, 3 \}\)

Length:1

`COL_LENGTH`

Column length

Unit:\(\mathrm{m}\)

Type:double

Range:\(> 0\)

Length:1

`TOTAL_POROSITY`

Total porosity

Type:double

Range:\([0,1]\)

Length:1

`VELOCITY`

Interstitial velocity of the mobile phase (optional if \(\texttt{CROSS_SECTION_AREA}\) is present, see Section Specification of flow rate / velocity and direction)

Unit:\(\mathrm{m}\,\mathrm{s}^{-1}\)

Type:double

Range:\(\mathbb{R}\)

Length:\(1 / \texttt{NSEC}\)

`CROSS_SECTION_AREA`

Cross section area of the column (optional if \(\texttt{VELOCITY}\) is present, see Section Specification of flow rate / velocity and direction)

Unit:\(\mathrm{m}^{2}\)

Type:double

Range:\(>0\)

Length:1

## Group /input/model/unit_XXX/discretization - UNIT_TYPE = LUMPED_RATE_MODEL_WITHOUT_PORES¶

Type:int

Range:\(\geq 0\)

Length:\(\texttt{NCOMP}\)
