One in a series of eleven Memoranda detailing the Distributed Adaptive Message Block Network, a proposed digital data communications system based on a distributed network concept. Results of investigations into the behavior of distributed communications networks under various loading conditions are reported. A mathematical model and a deterministic equation for predicting the distribution of message path-lengths are derived and evaluated. A SCAT-encoded simulation program that corrects deficiencies of earlier simulations is described.
