Two different methodologies used in simulation.
Analogical simulation is based on similarities and uses mechanical, hydraulical or electrical models whose functional properties are sufficiently similar (i.e. homomorphic) to those of the concrete system. Reduced models of harbours, or scale models of artifacts are examples.
Digital simulation uses numerical analytical models that can be translated to programs adequate to be run on a digital computer.
