In this paper, the variation of temperature during parachute inflation is simulated by system dynamics methodology. In this methodology, causal loops for system have been identified and flow diagram is drawn. Flow diagram consists of flow rate variables, level variables and auxiliary variables. In causal mechanism principal feedback loops are identified. It also simplfies illustration due to various influencing factors such as pressure, rate of pressure, mass of parachute, textile characteristics, motion of folded parachute to compresion under pressure and interaction between parachute and its container/bag.
