Edvard Demšar (2009) Simulation and visualisation of physical phenomena. EngD thesis.
This work tries to present basic features of 3D rendering and simulations of experiments in physics. To understand things better there is a short overview of theoretical basics. When reading about rendering we also try to explain human perception of three dimensional world that surrounds us. This is an important issue because in our product JxyZET we try to get as close as possible towards human perception of 3D world. Basic part of this work is to present software product JxyZET which encapsulates didactic potential by learning of physics and is implemented in programming language Java where you can also find short overview of this powerfull language. Main goal is to present capabilities of rendering and simulation in educational purposes. Second part of this work, entitled JxyZET, tries to convince the reader about didactic potential of the product. Afterwards we present all basic functionalities of the product, we explain the sequence of simulation steps based on theory presented in the first part. Complete procedure is mathematically an physically proofed. We do the similar with 3D rendering which is presented in the next chapter. In the last chapter we present searching and rendering of electrical field lines and equipotential surfaces which give to JxyZET real professional look of educational resource in learning physical experiments.. The topics explained in this chapter represented mathematically the most difficult part to be implemented in JxyZET.
