Chapter 14


Each of the projects linked below are intended as capstone modeling and coding problems for an introductory course in modeling and simulation. Each of the projects has these components:

  1. An introduction to the underlying system and the related mathematical equations.
  2. A set of questions to be addressed through the implementation and testing of the model.
  3. A set of optional additions to the basic model.
  4. An optional starting code outlining the major programming steps to implement the basic model.
  5. A set of references that describe the system and models of that system that have been previously implemented.
  6. Where possible, links to sources of data that can be used to validate the model.
