ASim Java Simulator

  • Project name: ASim Java Simulator
  • Source of funding: NASK
  • Project goal: The goal of the project was the development the ASim/Java environment for conducting discrete phenomenon system simulations.


ASim/Java fits the federated simulator paradigm. The solution allows for the development of complex physical system simulators via combining simulators (even those developed by separate research teams) of parts of such systems. A group of distributed simulators operating within a single experiment forms a federation of simulators. This approach can compete with currently available commercial simulators, which are frequently expensive and difficult to use.


The development of the ASim/Java proprietary environment for simulating systems of discrete phenomena, which facilitates the development of distributed simulators of various physical systems.
