Ever wondered what the view might be from the top of that distillation column, or how a water treatment plant or new tank farm might be constructed? Well, you can find answers to these questions using a suite of virtual 3D and 4D process engineering environments built around high resolution digital photography. These environments take the user up close to the real action, with little risk of getting injured but with an opportunity for deeper learning...

Work on virtual 3D and 4D process engineering environments has led to the development and deployment of various process engineering virtual reality (VR) tools in universities within Australia, Europe, and the US. Real plant data are available for analysis and design activities within engineering courses and all these features can be put to good effect in learning activities within both companies and universities. Linking of piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) to the 3D VR environment enhances process engineering insights into complex designs. With the development of the new 4D environments the user can now move around the site to the various viewing nodes located at strategic positions. The current 4D projects provide resources that show many aspects of project management and capture a wide range of important interdisciplinary issues that are common to large infrastructure projects.
