Project Title:
Computer Visualisation of Sand Grains
Supervisor:ZHAO Jidong
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.
Course type:UROP1000 UROP1100 UROP2100  
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.  
Complexity of the project:Moderate
