Stochastic Simulation of The Dynamic Behavior of Grain Storage Facilities
This web contents files of my Ph.D. thesis which title is Stochastic Simulation of The Dynamic Behavior of Grain Storage Facilities. This work was carried out with the objective of developing 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.
