  6. (simulation) the act of imitating the behavior of some situation or some process by means of something suitably analogous (especially for the purpose of study or personnel training)
  7. Simulation is the imitation of some real thing, state of affairs, or process. The act of simulating something generally entails representing certain key characteristics or behaviours of a selected physical or abstract system.

  10. (simulation) Something which simulates a system or environment in order to predict actual behaviour; The process of simulating; the act of falling over in order to be awarded a foul, when a foul hasn't been committed
  11. (Simulated) Artificial gemstones used to “simulate” natural gemstonesGemstones in order to make more affordable jewellery, for example simulated pearls.
  12. (Simulation) the use of a computer to imitate the behavior of a real system, leading to a better understanding of that system. Molecular simulation applies and combines methods and strategies like molecular modeling, molecular mechanics, QM, and mesoscale modeling to study chemical systems.
  13. (Simulation) A process involving special x-ray pictures that are used to plan radiation treatment so that the area to be treated is precisely located and marked for treatment.
  14. (Simulation) a 3D technique used to balance the line. It involves using cardboard, wood and plastic foam to create full-sized equipment mock ups that can be easily moved around to obtain an optimum layout.
  15. (Simulation) The imitation of the reality for studying the effect of changing parameters in a model as a means of preparing a decision.
  16. (Simulation) The process of imitating a real phenomenon with a set of mathematical formulas.
  17. (Simulation) "The process of designing a model of a real system and conducting experiments with this model for the purpose of understanding the behavior of the system and/or evaluating various strategies for the operation of the system" -- Introduction to Simulation Using SIMAN, by C. D. ...
  18. (simulation) The representation of an actual system by means of a mathematical model (for example, a power flow is a simulation of an actual power system and provides data on how the system will perform under conditions studied).
  19. (Simulation) When the forth dimension – time – is added to a model it becomes a simulation.  A simulation may be physical, such as a wind tunnel or mathematical such as a flight simulation program.  Simulations are also always “wrong” in that they never exactly recreate reality. ...
