Investigation on Key Technology of Virtual Assembly and Construction for Tunnel Boring Machine
This study presents a practical requirement and realizes one new virtual construction interactive system for tunnel boring machine. One type of TBM(tunnel boring machine)’s virtual prototype has been built. Software PROE is used to build the shield machine model. Application program of virtual assembly system base on virtual reality is developed by using Division, The author also study on key technologies of constructing virtual assembly system of shield machine, such as interference detection in virtual environment. Application program of virtual simulation system base on virtual reality is developed by using C++. The result shows that the work station can be simulated well, and this virtual simulation system can be extended in virtual training and manipulation, virtual construction and so on.
