# Model

A model is used to represent a computer model and it defined by the combination of an Input and an Evaluator.

## Contents

### Evaluate the model

The Model can be evaluated by using the method *deterministicAnalysis*. This will used the (default) values defined in the Input to evaluate (run) the Model. See Deterministic Analysis for additional information.

### Where are the results?

The results of the analysis (simulation) are stored in a SimulationData object

### What kind of analysis can be performed with a Model?

The Model can be used to perform Design of Experiment, Uncertainty Quantification, Sensitivity Analysis and Optimisation.

### What about Reliability Analysis?

Reliability analysis requires first the definition of the so called Performance Function. This can be combined with the Model to form a Probabilistic Model

### What is a method?

A method is an action associated with an object. It can be seen as a function (and it is called just like functions), with the object(s) passed in as one of the arguments.
