MBL Modelshell

The modelshell program is a wrapper for mass balance type models. Modelshell provides a GUI interface, input and output routines, and a simple graphing routine. Models can be incorporated into modelshell by writing a Model Table in MS Word and then translating the table into Delphi code using the program “Create Equations”. It is written in Borland Delphi. Modelshell uses a commercial package for various pages. This package, TAdvStringgrid, must be downloaded (www.tmssoftware.com) and installed before using modelshell.

This page contains the modelshell files for the modelling software we have written in Borland Delphi for IBM PC compatibles.

The following versions are available.
