‘Advanced Continuous Simulation Language’ (ACSL; AEgis Technologies, Hunts-ville, AL) is a Fortran-based language that can be used to build, run, and evaluate biological models as well as to fit and optimize parameters. In this paper, two models will used to illustrate the functionality of ACSL: a blood/bile model presented in the MLAB User’s Guide (1997) and a rumen model developed by France et al. (1982). These two problems will be used to demonstrate building a model, defining experimental observations, simulating and solving models, and evaluating results using ACSL.
