Abstract

Advances in immersive visualization technology allow for the creation of computer-generated, three-dimensional virtual reality environments. Using a CAVE system, a small group of users can be physically immersed within a full-scale virtual environment generated from standard Computer Aided Design (CAD) data. These virtual mockups can be used to provide an effective 1:1 scale review of a space for a small group of users, or to virtually perform human-in-the-loop task simulations to enable improved insight into arrangement, manufacturing, and operational issues. Penn State partnered with Westinghouse Electric, Burns and Roe Enterprises, and Panlyon Technologies to evaluate full-scale virtual mockup technology. Full-scale virtual mockups of spaces inside the Westinghouse AP 1000 have been created. These spaces are used as testbeds to understand the technology's potential contributions to design, construction, and operation of future nuclear power plants.
