This paper analyses the hydrodynamic behaviour of electrochemical reactors by simulating stimulus–response experiments. The experiments were performed with a simple experimental arrangement to generate data (Residence Time Distribution (RTD) curves) from electrolytic conductivity measurements. The multiparametric model proposed and the Matlab program developed allow the study of electrochemical reactors using three-dimensional electrodes, providing values of characteristic parameters of the materials, such as porosity and compressibility. The study of the reactor also permits modelling of the electrochemical reactions that will be produced inside it.
