Modeling and simulation of Ethernet-type bus networks have been conducted and various performance figures obtained. Most approaches do not consider an n-variable or an n-dimensional simulation model while conducting performance analysis over various types of data. This limitation was overcome by an approach called the grid-block structure that utilizes an n-dimensional space to generate performance figures for every possible combination of design parameters. This approach was applied to a linear bus network example running the IEEE 802.3 CSMA/CD protocol. Data, graphical, and space-time analyses are discussed with respect to the performance figures obtained from applying this structure
