Browse the example models below to explore one modeler’s conception of various phenomena using diagrams, static equilibrium, and time-based dynamic models with SageModeler.
|Bathtub – static
A simple static equilibrium model of the water level in a bathtub.
|Bathtub – dynamic
Two ways of building a dynamic time-based model of the level of water in a bathtub.
|Epidemic – static
A static equilibrium model of how many people catch a virus.
|Epidemic – dynamic v1
A dynamic time-based model of the progression of an illness as people spread the disease.
|Epidemic – dynamic v2
A dynamic time-based model similar to the one above, but including feedback in the system.
|The Lorax – static
A static equilibrium model of resource economics based on the children’s story by Dr. Seuss, The Lorax.
|The Lorax – dynamic
A dynamic time-based model exploring number of trees to profit over time based on the children’s story by Dr. Seuss, The Lorax.
Additional examples of dynamic time-based models
