Abstract:

This thesis provides the student of combat modelling with a computer program for a relatively simple combat model that can be used in a classroom environment for study and analysis. The model is an aggregated, force-on-force ground-combat model that uses Lanchesters aimed-fire equations for casualty assessment. The original version of the model was developed in 1979 in a previous thesis, and shortfalls in the original model have been overcome, along with the addition of several enrichments to provide added user flexibility. A users manual is provided to facilitate user access to the model from a permanent disk in the W. R. Church Computer Center. Author
