A Brief Research on Application of Virtual Reality Technology in the Mass Concrete Temperature Control
This thesis aims to create and develop an integrated operating system platform by using programming languages, which has comprehends virtual reality technology, database technology as well image animation, all these three newly-found technologies together, and is utilized into the constructive field of mass concrete temperature control management. Furthermore, this research implies a further study of the application of virtual reality in concrete dam construction endowed with all the following priorities, such as: man-made interactive function, effective operability and compatible interface, which can simulate and rehearse all types of constructive schemes visually as well as measures with a practicable intention to provide a certain scientifically theoretical method for the construction of mass concrete projects. Thus, this platform can furnish a dynamic model based on virtual reality and engineering animation for concrete dam designs, pouring and temperature controlling, even can lead the construction scheme into its fullest optimization for any concrete construction as harboring true aims to improve the production efficiency and reduce any risk on costs of the popularization in addition with its application of this new technology.
