SILVA, J.; MORALES, P.; MORALES, M.  and  AROCA, G.. Sensitivity analysis of a model which describes the biofiltration of VRSC commpounds. Lat. Am. appl. res. [online]. 2012, vol.42, n.4, pp.397-403. ISSN 0327-0793.

A sensitivity analysis of a model which describes the biooxidation of volatile reduced sulfur compounds (VRSC) using a biotrickling filter is developed. Consistent results are obtained using three methodologies; Standard Regression Coefficients (SRC), Fourier amplitude sensitivity test (FAST) and the Morris method (MOAT). The model presents a highly linear behavior of the uncertain parameters. It is shown how the properties of the biofilm and the parameters related with the kinetics have the highest influence on the model behavior; while on the other hand the properties related with mass transfer have low influence.

Keywords : Biofiltration; Sensitivity Analysis; VRSC; Modeling Biofilter; Biotrickling Filter.
