Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to describe a method for simulation of recently introduced fluid stochastic Petri nets. Since such nets result in rather complex set of partial differential equations, numerical solution becomes a formidable task. Because of a mixed, discrete and continuous state space, simulative solution also poses some interesting challenges, which are addressed in the paper.
