A balance represents the function of a system which provides a balance between the total rates of incom- ing and outgoing flows. Each balance function can have any number of connections and any number of conditions

Flow functions

In MFM functions are defined in relation to the processing of flows of mass and energy. MFM is based on a set of six generic flow functions representing different primitive operations performed on either mass or energy flow. These six functions are shown in the figure below and include: source, transport, storage, sink, balance and… read more »
