Improved Finger Bending Angles Measurements for Accurate Interactions with Virtual Objects
Wang, Hyuk ; Hwang, Sun-Uk ; Lee, Yong-Gu ;
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 13, issue 5, 2008, Pages 323~333
Various virtual gloves have been developed for the past four decades. These gloves have sensors that can measure bending angles at finger joints and the positions as well as orientations of hands. Previous researches were mostly concentrated on utilizing different kinds of sensors. As the technology matured, more interests are given towards building virtual reality applications. Furthermore, due to the recent reduction of costs, these devices have been widely adopted. Our particular interest lies in three-dimensional applications where virtual objects are grasped and manipulated. For these applications, it is crucial to accurately measure finger joints angles for realistic object interactions with the virtual hand. With inaccurate measurements, virtual hands would penetrate inside virtual objects after they are grasped. Or alternatively, virtual objects would be grasped before hands are making any contacts with virtual objects. In this paper, we introduce new design of virtual gloves for improved finger joints measurements.

Computer-aided engineering (CAE) analysis is considered essential for product development because it decreases the simulation time, reduces the prototyping costs, and enhances the reusability of product parts. The reuse of quality-assured CAE data has been continually increasing due to the extension of product lifecycle management; PLM, which is widely used, shortens the product development cycle and improves the product quality. However, less attention has been paid to systematic research on the interoperability of CAE data because of the diversity of CAE data and because the structure of CAE data is more complex than that of CAD data. In this paper, we suggest a CAE data exchange method for the effective sharing of geometric and analysis data. The method relies on heterogeneous CAE systems, a virtual reality system, and our developed CAE middleware for CAE data exchange. We also designed a generic CAE kernel, which is a critical part of the CAE middleware. The kernel offers a way of storing analysis data from various CAE systems, and, with the aid of a script command, enabling the data to be translated for a different system. The reuse of CAE data is enhanced by the fact that the CAE middle-ware can be linked with a virtual reality system or a product data management system.
Development of Lifecycle Support Modules for the ISO 10303-AP241; Generic model for Lifecycle support of AEC facilities

ISO 10303-AP241 is an Application Protocol of ISO 10303, which specifies the representation of AEC facility's life cycle information. The Working Draft of AP241 was submitted to the TC184/SC4 of ISO in July, 2007 by Korean team of ISO TC184/SC4/WG3. This paper introduces the currently developed draft Ap241 core model, and describes the life cycle support modules which are required to represent the life cycle information of AEC facilities. The draft core model is developed as a generic data model which is useful as a basis for implementation in a data warehouse. This core model could be used in combination with reference data such as PLCS RDL, Gellish table and RDL of ISO 15926. These concepts already exists in ISO 10303-AP221, AP239 and ISO 15926. In order to support maintenance and feedback of operational information concerning the AEC facilities, the AP241 team re-used many modules from AP239, and developed various STEP Application Modules which are adapted from the ISO 15926.
Development of IFC Modeling Extension for the Exchange and Sharing of Design Guideline Information in the Architectural Design Phase
Seo, Jong-Cheol ; Kim, In-Han ;
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 13, issue 5, 2008, Pages 352~361
Architectural design work depends on information made from earlier phases such as feasibility study, planning, and conceptual design. This design guideline information includes design objectives, requirements, and constraints made by decision-making, and has great influence on various works of latter phases of design process. Despite of this cognition, however, the lack of design guideline information management still remains as one among the critical issues in design area. Design tools with design guideline information do not also address the issue of interoperability throughout the life-cycle of buildings. The purpose of this research is to propose a method for design guideline information management by using the IFC technology and IFC Property set (Pset) extension mechanism. The method comprises defining and mapping the practically used design guideline items and extensible IFC data model, and includes the management of relationships that exist between design guideline information and design model in the IFC data model.

Generally, a PLM education program in university consists of lectures of theory, software lab and software development raining as an advanced subject. Most industries want more than these, such as practical problem solving capabilities, teamwork skills and engineering communications including human relationship, rhetoric, technical writing, presentation and etc. Problem-Based Learning is a problem-stimulated and student-centered teaming method, and an innovative education strategy for collaborative and self-directed learning by applying real world problems. Education paradigm changes from "teaching" to "learning" accomplished by team working, and students are encouraged to develop, present, explain and defense their ideas, suggestions or solutions of a problem, and the "cooperative teaming" proceeds spontaneously during team operations. Co-operative education program is an into-grated academic model and a structured educational program combining classroom learning with productive work experience in a field related to a student's academic or career goals. Based on the partnership between academic institutions and industries, students are engaged in real and productive "work" in the industry, in contrast with merely observing. In this paper, PBL with Co-op program is suggested as an effective approach for PLM education, and we made and operated a PBL-based education course with industry co-op program. The Co-op education in industry accompanied with the PBL course in university can improve practical problem solving capabilities of students, including modeling and management of P3R(Product, Process, resource and Plant) using commercial PLM software tools. By the result, we found this to be an effective strategy for helping students, professors and industries succeed in engineering education, especially PLM area.

We developed a design automation system to reduce the lead time and help engineers in designing a solid fuel, or a grain, for rocket missiles. First, we analyzed design activities and shapes of a grain, which resulted in the standard of design process and shape. We decided development process which consisted of two typical activities such as constructing master library and implementing design system. We constructed some master models for typical external shapes and core shapes of grains which were used in modeling the shape of a designing grain. Also we implemented a design automation program to use the master models according to the pre-defined design process. It can calculate some design parameters such as mass, mass center, volume and combustion area that are used in analyzing a proposed grain. Finally, we could reduce the design time dramatically and increase design quality by automating many routine and difficult works.

Five-axis machining has been applied to manufacture of turbine blades, impellers, marine propellers. Nowadays it extends to mold & die machining, where more productivity as well as added value is expected. The five-axis machining can be divided into positional and continuous, according to the variableness of tool orientation during material removal process. The positional five-axis machining is commonly applied to the regional machining on a whole part surface in mold manufacturing industry, where the tool orientation for each region (area) should be determined to be feasible, that is, avoiding any interference such as machine tool collision, etc. Therefore it is required for a CAM programmer to decide a feasible tool orientation in generating tool-paths on a designated area, because it is a very tedious job to obtain such information by utilizing a commercial CAM system. The developed system generates feasibility data on tool orientation and machining region, which facilitates the CAM programmer's decision on a feasible tool orientation.

Today's product development environment is characterized as abrupt changes in consumer needs and short lifecycle of the product, which requires manufacturing companies to be equipped with time-to-market and time-to-volume strategies as prime factors for the successful product launch on market. They especially need to bring a product to the market faster with smart methodologies that enable assembly manufacturers to efficiently simulate and manage part assembly information throughout product development process. The research in this paper provides n e-manufacturing methodology considering geometric constraints in order to decide assembly process sequences. The methodology organizies the part layout (position & orientation) in order to optimize human postures during the assembly processes. As the case studies, assembly parts for two commercial products have been generated as CAD models and analyzed for the desired solutions for part assembly sequences using the proposed methodology.
