Designing Form and Structure with Web3D Simulation

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: Visualization and Virtual Prototyping

Research team: Nicholas Polys

This project delivers a 3D space frame designer with several interactive deformers and coupled to structural simulator through the web. Multimedia structures website with information, images, videos, and 3D are made possible. Experimental data on principles for the visual perception of variables such as tensile force, stress, and load on structural members are also provided.
