Top-Level Modeling of Waste Processing and Resource Recovery Component of an ALSS 1999-01-2044
Accurate, flexible, and dynamic mathematical computer modeling tools are required for the development and parametric evaluation of the various possible Advanced Life Support Systems (ALSS) configurations. Such models are expected to take a top-level approach to maximize modularity, flexibility in development, and user/developer friendliness. Two approaches are taken for modeling the WPRR component of an ALSS: an object oriented approach coded in Java and a SIMULINK model. Each model exhibits distinct properties for the interchange of technologies, startup requirements, and hardware/software requirements, but are anticipated to provide successful ALSS models.
