Paper Abstract

We present a system that visualizes displacement, acceleration, and strain that were measured during an earthquake simulation experiment in a geotechnical centrifuge. Our visualization tool starts by reading the data describing experiment set-up and displaying this data along with icons for the sensors used during data acquisition. Different sensor types (measuring acceleration, displacement and strain) are indicated by different icons. One general experiment set-up is used in a sequence of simulated earthquake events. Once a user has selected a particular event, measured data can be displayed as a two-dimensional (2D) graph/plot by clicking the corresponding sensors. Multiple sensors can be animated to obtain a three-dimensional (3D) visualization of measured data.
