What is computer simulation?
A computer simulation is the use of a computer to imitate a real process or system. The dynamic responses of one system are represented by the behavior of another system, which is largely modeled on the former. A simulation requires a model or a mathematical description of the real system. This is in the form of computer programs that include the key properties or behavior of the selected system. Here the model is basically a representation of the system and the simulation process is known for the business of the system in time.
Computer simulations are used to study dynamic behavior in an environment that is difficult or dangerous to implement in real life. Suppose a nuclear explosion pressure can be represented by a mathematical model that takes into account various elements such as velocity, heat, and radioactive emissions. Additionally, one can implement changes to the equation by changing certain other variables, such as the amount of fissile material used in the explosion.
Simulations help to a large extent to determine behavior when individual components of a system are changed. Simulations can also be used in engineering to determine potential impacts such as: B. that of river systems for the construction of dams.
