RunTheModel is moving to AnyLogic Cloud

AnyLogic Cloud is a free service for running, analyzing, and sharing models via web browser.

RunTheModel will be discontinued in January, 2018. To keep working with your models, please transfer them to AnyLogic Cloud using AnyLogic 8. Watch how-to video for help.

SIR - Healthcare

1458 runs

Added by AnyLogic

Application area: Infectology

Simulation method: System Dynamics


A “classic” system dynamics model of contagious disease diffusion. The total population is divided into three compartments with respect to their disease status: Susceptible to the disease, Infectious, and Recovered (SIR). As people are infected they move from the Susceptible category to the Infectious category, and then, as they recover, to the Recovered category. The disease spreads as those who are infectious contact and pass the disease to the susceptible ones (the positive feedback loop) while at the same time depleting the pool of susceptible (the negative loop). The recovery from the disease creates another negative feedback loop. You can run the model with different parameter values and compare the results.

The model was created with AnyLogic - simulation software / Infectology
