# Abstract:

Our work on Simulaid, our simulator generation environment, is continuing. During the past quarter, we have implemented a prototype simulation environment and used it to construct a simple simulation. The simulator is specified in a few pages of text, defining the mathematical model and the method for solving it. The Simulaid system, given this specification as input, constructs a simulator for that problem. The first simulator we specified solves a simple fluid flow problem. The mathematical model contains definitions for the primitive objects in this simulator fluids, boundary sections, and boundary conditions, as well as the equation used to model the flow in this case Laplaces equation. The simulation specification, which provides a method for interpreting the mathematical model, uses the boundary element method to solve the partial differential equation defined in the model.
