%X Computer simulation of systems (e.g. magnetic fusion,
nuclear power plants, weather forecasting, ...) will have a
strong impact on theoretical and experimental research in
the future, because experiments on real systems are
impossible due to the danger, the cost or the duration of
the experiment. Computer simulation of a system is therefore
an attractive alternative. Generally, large and complicated
systems are simulated, so this requires an enormous amount
of computing power. In this paper, we describe the
possibility to use a home\-built multitransputersystem, The
Computing Tower, for system simulation and methods to
implement a block\-structured simulation language on this
system the most efficient way.
