In this work we present numerical study of a trapped Bose-Einstein condensate perturbed by an alternating potential. The relevant physical situation has been recently realized in experiment, where the trapped condensate of 87Rb, being strongly perturbed, exhibits the set of spatial structures. Firstly, regular vortices are detected. Further, increasing either the excitation amplitude or modulation time results in the transition to quantum vortex turbulence, followed by a granular state. Numerical simulation of the nonequilibrium Bose-condensed system is based on the solution of the time-dependent 3D nonlinear Schrodinger equation within the static and dynamical algorithms. The damped gradient step and time split-step Fourier transform methods are employed. We demonstrate that computer simulations qualitatively reproduce the experimental picture, and describe well the main experimental observables.
