Could you let me know what are the units used for the O2
reaction rates (in the chart of dynamic simulation results)?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Dear Paul,


ASIM is written in a nondimensional way. So, the user can
choose the units freely but it is important to use a
consistent set of units. It is recommended to use gramme
[mass], mole, m3 [volume] and day [time] as units. Then
units of O2 reaction rates are g/m3/day. The time scale in
the charts is always hours. We know that it is unusual not
to add units to the axis labels of the charts but if you
need a chart for publication you can easily add units by
right-click on the chart and choose 'Edit Chart' to edit the
chart.


Kind regards,


Rolf Fankhauser
