Sink

Definition A sink represents the function of a system serving as an infinite drain of mass or energy. As for the source function, this function can be used in many cases as an adequate abstraction. Rules A sink has one input A sink must alway be connected to a transport

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 »
