This text provides an introduction to the fundamental theories and applications of rapid prototyping and traces its development in the arena of advanced manufacturing technologies.

Computer Science and its Applications

When it encounters the hardware dependent parts in the software running cycle under virtual prototyping, the virtual prototype acts as physical hardware. Then the developer can get a result of testing without physical hardware.

We undertook this research project to assess the feasibility of using virtual prototypes in the DOD weapon systems acquisition process. Our goal was to identify and assess the current uses of virtual prototypes by commercial companies, defense contractors and universities. The Defense Science Board and the Defense Modeling and Simulation Office are confident that virtual prototyping can have a beneficial influence on the defense acquisition process. We were skeptical about the usefulness of virtual prototyping and were curious to see who, if anyone, was using virtual prototypes in the development process. We wanted first-hand impressions from people with hands-on experience on how they viewed the utility of virtual prototypes, their successes, disappointments, key risks and challenges. Because 'virtual prototype' is becoming a buzzword in today's vernacular, we wanted to know what people from industry, government and academia meant by the term and how they envisioned its application. This then was our charter -- to assess and describe the current state of virtual prototyping.

This book provides an open platform to establish and share knowledge developed by scholars, scientists, and engineers from all over the world, about various applications of the modeling and simulation in the design process of products, in various engineering fields. The book consists of 12 chapters arranged in two sections (3D Modeling and Virtual Prototyping), reflecting the multidimensionality of applications related to modeling and simulation. Some of the most recent modeling and simulation techniques, as well as some of the most accurate and sophisticated software in treating complex systems, are applied. All the original contributions in this book are jointed by the basic principle of a successful modeling and simulation process: as complex as necessary, and as simple as possible. The idea is to manipulate the simplifying assumptions in a way that reduces the complexity of the model (in order to make a real-time simulation), but without altering the precision of the results.
