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.
