Abstract:

This thesis presents a stochastic simulation model of ground combat. The tactics represented in the model are explained in detail, and a brief explanation of the SIMSCRIPT programming language used in the model is presented. The model is explained in detail, and the computer routines which make up the model are included. The input requirements for execution of the model are explained in detail so that this thesis might become the initial users manual for future applications of the model. A typical simulated battle is presented with detailed explanation of the output to enable the reader to better appreciate the potential applications of the model. The current status of the model referenced in the thesis is prior to the version which will be used for production runs.
