Computer Visualisation of Sand Grains
Project Description

The project aims to visualise packing of many sand grains using the Povray (the Persistence of Vision Ray Tracer) program to help civil engineers and researchers to understand sand behaviour for better design of geotechnical applications.

Applicant's Roles

The duty is to develop Povray codes to visualise sand packings with complex shape particles. The applicants need to be very interested in computer programming ( prior experience in any computer language coding is a plus but not mandatory) and prepare to face challenges.

Applicant's Learning Objectives

Applicant will be able to master one of the most advanced computer graphics techniques in helping civil engineering transform data into artistic high-quality visualisations.
