Abstract : The Mine Delivery Model is a Monte Carlo computer simulation of the delivery of mines in detail by ships, submarines, and/or aircraft. Inputs are of such a nature as to permit the simulated execution of any specific mining plan and the outputs provide sufficient information for subsequent evaluation of the plan by a threat assessment model. The model as programmed for the CDC 1604 Computer consists of five programs. The first two programs convert input data, the third and main program is the mine delivery simulation, the fourth program provides a detailed printout of both inputs and game results, i.e., the calculated parameters for each mine layed accompanied by selected statistics, and the fifth program provides statistics and graphs on the distributions of the mine positions.
