Simulations

Definition

Simulation can be defined as an imitation of some real thing. This imitation is to gain a proper understanding of the real thing and to get an appropriate solution. The use of simulations will prevent the effect of creating a prototype that can lead to danger, destruction of infrastructure and buildings and the loss of human lives. The advantages of simulations is that when a project is simulated, errors can be identified and corrected. Simulation is the process of developing a working model of an object will lead to gaining a detailed understanding of the real thing that the simulation is intended for.

Advantages of Simulation

  • Simulation can lead to performance optimization when it is modelled.
  • The outcome of simulation is that the designer will have the confidence that the project will be successful and accurate, since it has be prototyped and modelled with high degree of observation. It can be applied to different models to be able to actually see how it works before it being created.
  • Attached here is a video of how fire can be put of when it engulf an object, in real live if this is carried out, will lead to high cost but simulation will prevent the cost of imitation and the project can be done with any form of destruction or disruption.

Types of simulations

  • Military simulations
  • Flight simulations
  • Finance simulation
  • Engineering simulations..

An Example of Simulation - The Video

The video shows how simulation is used for training and for predicting the effect of fire on a plane and the time taken for the fire engine to get there and to put of the fire.
