Not Available Dual, Incorporated proposes the innovative use of Virtual Reality Visualization (VRV) and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) technologies to develop a low cost tool enabling the presentation of weapons effects on simulated combat systems in real time. Using the unique ability of the virtual environment to present complex multi-dimensional and multivariate data (such as FEA output files) in an intuitive format tailored to user needs, this tool allows a person to observe and quickly comprehend the effects of a weapon impact on a simulated ship, aircraft or land- based target. Traditional methods using raw FEA data to describe weapons damage are cumbersome for typical users to employ. The Virtual Environment for Weapons Effects Visualization (VEWEV) tool enables a person to observe weapon penetration, fragmentation, stress, and heat distribution via three dimensional deformational presentations of external and internal views of the target. These views are augmented with color coded stress gradients, and a capability for specialized graphical displays to provide supplementary information in a format meaningful to the user. The virtual environment provides the observer with a unique ability to navigate into and through a structure, and to perceive details and data unavailable with any other inspection method.
