One of the most important challenges in mobile Ad-hoc networks is simulation. The simulation of these networks based on the accessible simulation techniques, which are based on packet, is a demanding and time-consuming task. Moreover, with the complexity of the network and the increase in the numbers of the nodes, it is likely to take a long time. This is because these simulators, one by one, regard the acts of all moving packets in one part of the network, and process these acts as a series of events. Since the number of the events is high in this method, the simulation takes time. Nowadays, in wired networks, several methods have been suggested to lessen the time of simulation; one example can be the technique of model summarizing which is well used in these networks. The proposed method in this paper represents a simulation technique based on Fluid flow for Ad-hoc networks. Then we can implement the routing protocols according to the proposed method. Finally, the routing protocols in such networks are evaluated based on the amount they accelerate the simulation.
