1. Functions II

1.1.2 Transport and storage The internal functions of a system can often be modelled using only a transport and storage function. The transport functions represents the movement or displacement of physical matter such as solids, liquids or gasses, or of energy in the form of thermal, radiation, potential or kinetic energy. If water is transported… read more »

1.1 Functions

Multilevel Flow Modelling is an ontology for modelling system functionality. Models are made up of functions and relations connecting the functions. A function is a node which is connected with adjacent nodes through relations. Six different types of functions exist in MFM: Source, transport, storage, balance, barrier and sink. 1.1.1 Boundaries The source acts as… read more »
