# Function to calculate maximum time weighted average concentrations from kinetic models fitted with mkinfit

Source:`R/max_twa_parent.R`

`max_twa_parent.Rd`

This function calculates maximum moving window time weighted average
concentrations (TWAs) for kinetic models fitted with `mkinfit`

.
Currently, only calculations for the parent are implemented for the SFO,
FOMC, DFOP and HS models, using the analytical formulas given in the PEC
soil section of the FOCUS guidance.

## Usage

```
max_twa_parent(fit, windows)
max_twa_sfo(M0 = 1, k, t)
max_twa_fomc(M0 = 1, alpha, beta, t)
max_twa_dfop(M0 = 1, k1, k2, g, t)
max_twa_hs(M0 = 1, k1, k2, tb, t)
```

## Arguments

- fit
An object of class

`mkinfit`

.- windows
The width of the time windows for which the TWAs should be calculated.

- M0
The initial concentration for which the maximum time weighted average over the decline curve should be calculated. The default is to use a value of 1, which means that a relative maximum time weighted average factor (f_twa) is calculated.

- k
The rate constant in the case of SFO kinetics.

- t
The width of the time window.

- alpha
Parameter of the FOMC model.

- beta
Parameter of the FOMC model.

- k1
The first rate constant of the DFOP or the HS kinetics.

- k2
The second rate constant of the DFOP or the HS kinetics.

- g
Parameter of the DFOP model.

- tb
Parameter of the HS model.

## Value

For `max_twa_parent`

, a numeric vector, named using the
`windows`

argument. For the other functions, a numeric vector of
length one (also known as 'a number').
