Abstract

This paper describes an immersive virtual reality system for steel structures. The system integrates standard models and formats for representing structural steel and three-dimensional graphic objects with a framework for device independent virtual environments. The result is an immersive virtual reality display of steel structures that includes all parts from beams and columns to bolts, welds, holes, and copes.
