In conjunction with Kaustubha's point above about the automation server, the actual commands that you will want to run will likely be either "sim", or "set_param( my_model_name, 'SimulationCommand', 'start')". In addition to this, if you open a model's configuration parameters and go to the "Import/Export" section, you can specify MATLAB variables to be associated with the inports and outports of the model.

Starting MATLAB as an automation server from your .NET application could be an option. You can put your data in the MATLAB workspace using PutWorkspaceData and get it back using GetWorkspaceData. Simulink can read/write from the MATLAB workspace using From/To Workspace blocks.
