Explain computer simulation with examples? What are is benefits?

Computer simulation is a special type of computer model. It creates an artificial model of a system. The model can be used to train the people. It can also be used to get familiar with an environment before entering the environment in the real world. It also reduces the cost of training the people in real world. Computer simulations are used in educational institutes to understand the working of various systems.

Computer simulation


Computer simulations are as follows:

  1. The simulation of aeroplane is part of pilot training. The pilot can understand the working different parts of aeroplane using this simulation.
  2. The students can perform complicated experiments using simulations. It allows the students to get the results quickly. The simulation can include simple graphical or numerical representation of chemical and physical experiments.


The benefits of computer simulations are as follows:

  1. It is cost effective.
  2. It can be used to train a large number of people easily.
  3. The same simulation can be used on multiple computers.

What is the use of computer in airline system?

Computers are used in airline systems to control aircraft’s and vehicles. The modern aircraft’s are controlled by sending electronic signals to different parts of the aircraft. Computer is embedded in the pilot’s controls. The pilot can interact with the control room on different airports during his flight.


Computer is also used in airline systems for reservation of seats for the customers. If is used to provide the information about different flights etc.

How computer can be useful in weather forecasting?

Computers are also used in weather forecasting. A computerized weather forecasting system gets the data from different weather stations, airports, satellites etc. the system generates a forecast about the weather.


Weather forecasting is very complex. The perfect forecasting is very difficult and there is always a possibility of variation in the weather. Different organizations use computerized weather forecasting systems. An example is the SPARCO weather forecasting department.
