This paper presents a new logical process (LP) simulation model for distributed simulation systems where Null Message Algorithm (NMA) is used as an underlying time management algorithm (TMA) to provide synchronization among LPs. To extend the proposed simulation model for n number of LPs, this paper provides a detailed overview of the internal architecture of each LP and its coordination with the other LPs through sub-system components and models such as communication interface and simulation executive. The proposed architecture of LP simulation model describes the proper sequence of coordination that need to be done among LPs though different subsystem components and models to achieve synchronization. To execute the proposed LP simulation model for different set of parameters, a queuing network model is used. Experiments will be performed to verify the accuracy of the proposed simulation model using the pre-derived mathematical equations. Our numerical and simulation results can be used to observe the exchange of null messages and overhead indices.
