This book highlights a set of selected, revised and extended papers from the 7th International Conference on Simulation and Modeling Methodologies, Technologies and Applications (SIMULTECH 2017), held in Madrid, Spain, on July 26 to 28, 2017. The conference brought together researchers, engineers and practitioners whose work involves methodologies in and applications of modeling and simulation. The papers showcased here represent the very best papers from the Conference, and report on a broad range of new and innovative solutions.

Developed for humanities students at Yale and intended for the general reader interested in flight, this book is about aerodynamics in the broadest sense. To put the science into its social context, the author describes (with many illustrations) the history of human attempts to fly and discusses the outlook for future developments, as well as the social impact of commercial aviation. Although only elementary mathematics is used, the underlying science is discussed rigorously, but clearly, and with an emphasis on the visualizable aspects. Thus readers whose background is not in physics will deepen their knowledge of physics, gain an understanding of what keeps the huge airliners up, and appreciate some of the details of the exciting recent developments in technology.
This is the speed at which drivers are expected to operate, much like the speeds
at which airliners operate as they approach a hub airport. Here, the airliners
operating speeds may be increased or decreased based on both safety and

The U.S. Air Force (USAF) needs accurate models to develop retention policies that ensure the force has a sufficient number of experienced officers to meet current and future requirements. The dynamic retention model (DRM) can be used to take into account the effect of the availability of multi-year contracts to certain classes of Air Force officers. Unlike the annualized cost of leaving (ACOL) model long used by researchers working on USAF personnel issues, the DRM takes into account the value an officer may place on future career flexibility in the face of uncertainty, and thus is particularly well suited to examining the effect of bonus programs that have service commitments, such as the Aviator Continuation Pay (ACP) program, which pays an annual bonus to pilots and certain groups of navigators and air battle managers who commit to extend their service for specified numbers of years or to a specified length of service.
