Residence time including mean residence time and residence time distribution (RTD) is a very important parameter to characterize a mixing system. In practice, tracer study has been widely used in experiments to obtain residence time distribution. There are several numerical approaches available to compute the average residence time and the residence time distribution of a system. This paper attempts to summarize those available approaches through an example.
