Impact of Visualization Augmentation on Welder Training: A Study with the Simulated MIG Lab
by White, Steven A., Ph.D., University of Louisiana at Lafayette, 2013, 97; 3590087
Abstract (Summary)

This works outlines the creation of a fully immersive real time simulation of the Metal Inert Gas Welding technique. It outlines the creation, development and trials associated with creating a unique GPU based physical simulation and visualizations associated with the simulated environment. A trial is conducted among various students and technical personnel with the simulator to investigate the concepts of learning transfer through simulation augmentation. The results are positive towards low-road transfer and additionally outline future studies in the fields.
