Three-Dimensional Interactive Simulation of Anschütz Gyrocompass Based on VRML
Gyrocompass is an important instrument which provides course to vessels, but its complex three-dimensional structure and principle of pointing towards the North is a bottleneck of studying gyrocompass. The master compass of Anschütz 4 gyrocompass are simulated by virtual reality modeling language VRML, so that using three-dimensional interactive to show the structure of the gyrocompass and the work principle is implemented and learners will have a direct cognition to each part of the gyrocompass and its work principle. The realization process of simulation in the virtual reality environment is described in detail and the relevant source codes is given.
