Knowledge, capabilities and practices associated with
mathematical modeling, the design of algorithms and applied
computational methods, simulation and analysis of physical
systems to represent structural, fluid, thermal, dynamic,
chemical, or other real phenomena in a quantifiable manner.
This includes using manual calculations and computer
simulation software. Models can refer to launch vehicle,
spacecraft, ground support equipment, handling equipment,
and facility/flight interface hardware related physical
systems design of algorithms and applied computational
methods. This includes capability in the area of quantum
computing. Understanding of the physical principle
represented in the model is essential to this competency.
