<p>An approximation method for obtaining the throughput of cyclic queueing networks with blocking as a function of the number of customers in it is presented. The approximation method was developed for two different blocking mechanisms. It was also extended to the case of the central server model with blocking. Validation tests show that the algorithm is fairly accurate.</p>
