Abstract : This report concerns the development, verification, and utilization of a psychosocial digital simulation model. The model was described in a previous report as a technique for simulating the performance of submarine crews operating in confined quarters for extended time intervals. This report presents further developmental information on the model and sensitivity data from its initial use. Some general aspects of simulation, as they apply to the model, are developed first. Then the computer and computer programing aspects of the model are presented. A hypothetical ten day mission, generated to approximate a potentially realistic situation, is described and employed as a demonstration of the sensitivity of some of the model's critical parameters.
