Implementation parallelized queueing network simulations using FORTRAN and data abstraction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Since FORTRAN is likely to be available on the computer and familiar to the researcher, it may be the most logical candidate for coding the simulation. However, FORTRAN does not enforce data abstraction, which is a useful tool in specifying, designing, and implementing a simulation effort. FAD, a FORTRAN preprocessor which allows the encapsulation of user-defined abstract data types, is discussed. Data abstraction and FAD are illustrated in the simulation of a queuing network.
