Material Flow Simulation Software for CEEF: Closed Ecology Experiment Facilities 951537
IES (Institute for Environmental Sciences) is now constructing CEEF at Rokkasho, Aomori, Japan.
The simulation for material flow is made based on a system model of CEEF, which includes one person and 7 plant species of Rice, Soybean, Komatsuna, Sesame, Tomato, Potato and Buckwheat.
In this simulation software, plants, human and their support systems are mathematically defined and material flows such as O2, N2, CO2, waters, fertilizers and organic matters are computed. This software simulates only material flow and but does not simulate thermal dynamics of the environment.
The simulation result showed reasonable material flows in a closed system.
