Actually, this is a very good thread on CWD to read that simplifies it. I found that the Animas pump, at least for me, had the most accurate representation of DIA. http://forums.childrenwithdiabetes.com/showthread.php?15364-Extrapolating-curvelinear-IOB-charts-from-Animas-and-Paradigm
Actually, I do know twodoor2, and her husband is an EE. Maybe I can get them in on the OpenAPS project.
From here (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3038395/) :
@TC2013 , for simplicity sake, I would go the CWD thread route, and just use a pump for referencing DIA information as percents. However, a more ideal way (although slightly more time consuming--possibly more imprecise) is looking at the package insert of the insulin of whatever your CWD is using. You would look at the graph for the absorption profile where the "peak" of the insulin represents 100% DIA and no remaining DIA as 0% . Using the graph and the values in between those extremes, you can interpolate the remaining DIA for the respective insulin he uses.
