SEIR Model for the COVID-19 Epidemic
Application ID: 86511
Tutorial example of a Erlang SEIR model for the epidemic of COVID-19. The model is validated against data from China, Sweden, and the US.
Parametric estimation is done using the reported deaths over time.
The tutorial investigates the impact of social distancing on the progress of the epidemic.
This application example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
