Modelling and Simulation

Modelling and simulation covers an enormous area. Grallator has experience in fields ranging from health care to nuclear waste and salmon lice to building cladding. The image links below give some general examples of how modelling and simulation can be used.

Differential equations are frequently used to model systems. This example considers their use in modelling an epidemic.


Advances in computing power allows for simulation using individual interacting agents that can mimic complex behaviour not easily captured by differential equations.

Time to queue

Sometimes continuous evolution of a system in time is not as important as capturing events that change the state of a system. In such cases discrete event simulation can help.

What's the best?

Optimisation is the art of finding the best way to design or operate that achieves the most with the least effort or material use.
