This chapter introduces the concept of simulation both with and without computers. it then discusses the role of models, including white, black and grey box models. it concludes by considering expert and other knowledge-based systems and their applications.
Simulation is normally used to analyse systems that are hard or impossible to describe using systems of explicit equations. in particular, this applies to highly complex dynamic systems such as most textile machines and processes. By carrying out a ...
