# Can I ask this question: Is there any aspect of a nuclear weapon test that cannot be simulated using super computers?

Nuclear weapons tests are experiments carried out to determine the effectiveness, yield, and explosive capability of nuclear weapons. However, these days most nuclear weapon states uses Super computers to simulate nuclear weapon testing.

Therefore, can all the parameters of a nuclear test be determined using computer simulation only?
