An Introduction to Network Modeling and Simulation for the Practicing Engineer pdf

Book Description:

This book provides the practicing engineer with a concise listing of currently available commercial and open-source modeling and simulation tools, including examples of implementing those tools for solving specific Modeling and Simulation examples. Instead of focusing on the underlying theory of Modeling and Simulation and fundamental building blocks for custom simulations, this book compares platforms used in practice. It gives rules enabling the practicing engineer to utilize available Modeling and Simulation tools. This book will contain insights regarding common pitfalls in network Modeling and Simulation and practical methods for working engineers.
