Plug-n-Play Simulations:


The file below installs several brand new Simscript II.5 Simulations without the need for Simscript II.5 Simulation Studio to be installed on your system. The installer will install the necessary Simscript run-time libraries so that you can open each example through a simple executable. In addition, a Program Menu group will be created so you can easily launch any of the seven examples.

Example Simulations Descriptions:


Weapons System Radar in Combat Environments
This simulation creates an airborne war time environment in unfriendly weather conditions. The surveillance plane flies a user defined path and tracks a user defined number of hostile vehicles.
Measurements of amplitude and phase shift are taken from the reflected radar signals and graphs are formed. To add to the simulation, rain falls over all of the simulated world with a user defined water density. The rain causes the reflected signals to be weaker and shifted more.
By clicking on a tracked target, the targets attributes will be displayed in the right window. The targets attributes display its' heading, total time tracked, range, and angle.
With the results of this simulation, one can determine the effective range of the radar in different rain conditions by cross referencing the sensitivity of the radar in decibels with the farthest distance which reflected that sensitivity value. In this manner, one can determine if the radar needs to be enhanced, or can be slimmed back for predetermined rain conditions.
In SIMSCRIPT SimStudio, user can create different scenarios by changing icons of the hostile vehicles and the background icon off-line by using Icon Editor. Here are several scenarios created for the same simulation model: in_the_air, apache, on_the_land and on_the_sea.
  • IN THE AIR:
    This scenario creates an airborne war time environment in unfriendly weather conditions. The surveillance plane (an F-14 Tomcat fighter aircraft) flies a user defined path and tracks a user defined number of F-16 fighter aircrafts.
  • APACHE:
    This scenario creates an airborne war time environment in unfriendly weather conditions. The surveillance aircraft (an Apache Helicopter) flies a user defined path and tracks a number of tank targets. The backgroung icon is imported geographical map in jpg format.
  • ON THE LAND:
    This scenario creates an airborne war time environment in unfriendly weather conditions. The surveillance plane (an F-14 Tomcat fighter aircraft) flies a user defined path and tracks a number of tank targets on the ground. The background icon is an imported geographical map in jpg format.
  • ON THE SEA:
    This scenario creates an airborne war time environment in unfriendly weather conditions. The surveillance plane (an F-14 Tomcat fighter aircraft) flies a user defined path and tracks a number of ship targets on the sea.

City Transit Simulation:
The city transit simulation simulates the everyday operation of a city transit which can be a bus or a subway train with four pre-defined stops on a circular path. This simulation makes use of Simscript Database Connectivity (SDBC) to store the results of the simulation into a database file.
Each of the four passenger stops indicates the number of people currently waiting for the transportation vehicle to arrive. Once it arrives, the queue of people will file into the transportation vehicle which then continues onto the next stop where the process is repeated. Clicking on any given passenger stop will display two graphs. The first graph displays the travel time from the that stop and that second indicates the wait time for the selected passinger stop. These values are stored into the database file in real-time and can later be opened for further examination when the simulation is over.
Different city transport models are created by changing the transit vehicle icons and the backgroung map icon. Here are examples of the Bus transportation and the Subway transportation models:
  • BUS SIMULATION:
    The bus simulation simulates the everyday operation of a city transit bus. It stores the results of the simulation into a database file (busDB.mdb).
  • SUBWAY SIMULATION:
    The subway simulation simulates the everyday operation of a city subway. It stores the results of the simulation into a database file (subDB.mdb).
CalShip Simulation:
The California Shipping Simulation simulates the operation of a West coast shipping and freight line. Freight ships and tankers travel up and down the coast to two different ports, San Pedro and Valdez. Once they are in the vicinity of the ports, a tugboat will come out to tug them to the one of the docking bays in each port. Once the supplies/oil has been unloaded from each ship, the tugboat then tugs the ships back to deep water where they continue to the other port. At the end of the simulation, statistics about the simulation are displayed to the user.
