Iconic Model

- Look alike object e.g. aeroplane
- By subjecting this model to wind tunnel tests, performance of real aeroplane can be inferred

- Attempts to represent physical relationships with numbers.
- E.g. Slide Rule replaces quantities by distances proportionate to their logarithms

- Attempts to represent real world properties with numbers, letters, or other symbols.

- Descriptive Model: Uses words or diagrams to express the real world
- Mathematical Model: Expresses realism with logic or qualitative relationships

- Static or Dynamic Model
- Analytical Model
- Simulation Model

- Deterministic Model: E.g. Lanchester equations
- Stochastic Model: E.g. Combat Models - as war involves uncertainty and risks. Random number generators are used to determine the outcome.
