The education community have used exisiting combustion rocket simulators to teach students the science of propulsion. When it came to building a classroom project, many teachers opt to build the easier and less dangerous water rocket. The teacher's request for a water rocket simulator was answered: real-time thrust calculation, drag calculation and velocity. Also included is the air impulse effect when the last bit of water 'pops' out of the bottle.
