Try something like this:

    class Simulation1(object):
        def greet(self):
            print "hello"

    class Simulation2(object):
        def greet(self):
            print "hello"

    class Simulation3(object):
        def greet(self):
            print "hello"


    def someFunc(simObj):
        simObj.greet()


    s1 = Simulation1()
    s2 = Simulation2()
    s3 = Simulation3()

    someFunc(s1)
    someFunc(s2)
    someFunc(s3)
