In this thesis I present results of my fully general relativistic magnetohydrodynamic (GRMHD) binary neutron star merger (BNS) simulations, conducted by using the numerical code "Whisky" under various conditions, such as, different Equation of State (EOS) for neutron matter (APR4, Ideal fluid and H4 EOSs), masses (with equal/unequal masses for two neutron stars), different magnetic field configurations (both fields of two neutron stars aligned with the inspiral axis, one aligned and one anti-aligned, and both anti-aligned) to investigate the effect of these parameters on the dynamics of the simulations and possibility of forming relativistic jets, which is thought to be one of the necessary conditions for the central engine of short gamma-ray bursts (SGRBs).
