In this work we present numerical techniques, based on the finite element method, for the simulation of reactive flows in a chemical flow reactor as well as for the identification of the kinetic of the reactions using measurements of observable quantities. We present the case of a real experiment in which the reaction rate is estimated by means of concentration measurements. We introduce methods for the optimal experimental design of experiments in the context of reactive flows modeled by partial differential equations.
