Adviser: Matthew Swarts
Physical model includes a table that constrains the placement of manipulatives representing buildings or urban blocks.
A depth sensor for scanning the table and configuration of manipulatives.
Server applications include software developed for different building performance analyses at the individual building and urban scales. This also includes the communication between servers and clientts.
Web client applications includes communication between server applications and screen based visualization of simulation results.
Projectors for 3D surface projection mapping augments the physical model with simulation results relevant to configuration of manipulatives.
Workflow in proposed system
Shadow Study - User Interaction with Virtual Simulation through Web and with Physical Prototype through Tangible Table
Solar Irradiance Analysis - Physical model and simulation result which is projected on TUI
Interactive web interface for users' interaction with application
Rationalization: functions, sub-functions, function requirements and performance criteria
