## Van de Vusse Reactor

The Van de Vusse reaction kinetics are employed in many benchmarking problems. This model is a simple stirred tank reactor model with reactions A->B->C and A->2D. Note that in the original reference, the reactor volume was listed as 0.01 L. This model has been modified for the original intent of 10 L reactor volume.
