This is an example of a large SuperMarx generator, capable of simulating full-scale lightning strikes.
Nothing compares to an item being testing with full-sized, full-value inputs.
Computer models are great: they have the benefits of being inexpensive and allowing nearly unlimited simulations. But computer models also have limitations and aren't always correct, because they run code which is created by people, to calculate formulas, which are based on gathered data from a finite number of real-world experiments. So while computer models can give accurate simulations under previously-tested conditions, they can quickly lose accuracy in new situations or untested parameters.
Small-scale physical models have the advantage of being real-world and also less expensive than full-scale testing, but a scale model is different from the real thing, and the forces and results will behave differently. In short, models don't always scale up accurately.
To get real results of how things will actually happen, full-sized testing is the only way to go. There are no substitutes. And that's where a SuperMarx Generator comes in -- full size, with full results.
