Stochastic Simulation of The Dynamic Behavior of Grain Storage Facilities

This work was carried out to develop a simulation toolset for performing analyses and evaluations of grain storage facilities. This toolset, a library called "Grain Facility," developed using the simulation ExtendTM, has a set of blocks that allows simulation of (i) receiving and dispatching activities, (ii) grain processing unit operations, (iii) operational decisions, and (iv) electrical and heat energy uses.
