For the description of gelation and porous media several percolation-type models have been proposed. To test how well these models describe the experimental results it is usually necessary to carry out numerical simulation of them. I will in this talk resume some of the numerical techniques to extract information out of percolation configurations and discuss the results obtained for some models for gelation.
