Katsioloudis, Petros; Jones, Mildred; Jovanovic, Vukica – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2016
Results from a number of studies indicate that the use of different types of music can influence cognition and behavior; however, research provides inconsistent results. Considering this, a quasi-experimental study was conducted to identify the existence of statistically significant effects on sectional view drawing ability due to the impacts of…

Katsioloudis, Petros; Jovanovic, Vukica; Jones, Mildred – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2016
Several theorists believe that different types of visual cues influence cognition and behavior through learned associations; however, research provides inconsistent results. Considering this, a quasi-experimental study was done to determine if there are significant positive effects of visual cues (color blue) and to identify if a positive increase…

Ernst, Jeremy Vaughn; Lane, Diarmaid; Clark, Aaron C. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2015
The ability to rotate visual mental images is a complex cognitive skill. It requires the building of graphical libraries of information through short or long term memory systems and the subsequent retrieval and manipulation of these towards a specified goal. The development of mental rotation skill is of critical importance within engineering…

Katsioloudis, Petros; Dickerson, Daniel; Jovanovic, Vukica; Jones, Mildred – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2015
The benefit of using static versus dynamic visualizations is a controversial one. Few studies have explored the effectiveness of static visualizations to those of dynamic visualizations, and the current state of the literature remains somewhat unclear. During the last decade there has been a lengthy debate about the opportunities for using…

Torrens, George Edward; Badni, Kevin; Hurn, Karl; Storer, Ian James – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2015
The manipulation of colour, form and texture within a commercial design activity is a core competency for an industrial designer. The job of the Industrial designer is to use colour, form, texture, temperature and movement to deliver a sensory experience that evokes a desired response. The core deliverables of an industrial designer are embedded…

Polys, Nicholas F.; Bacim, Felipe; Setareh, Mehdi; Jones, Brett D. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2015
There has been a significant gap between the tools used for the design of a building's architectural form and those that evaluate the structural physics of that form. Seeking to bring the perspectives of visual design and structural engineering closer together, we developed and evaluated a design tool for students and practitioners to explore the…

Metraglia, Riccardo; Villa, Valerio; Baronio, Gabriele; Adamini, Riccardo – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2015
Today's students enter engineering colleges with different technical backgrounds and prior graphics experience. This may due to their high school of provenience, which can be technical or non-technical. The prior experience affects students' ability in learning and hence their motivation and self-efficacy beliefs. This study intended to evaluate…

Yang, Yuting; Kang, Houliang – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2014
Three Dimensional or 3D virtual reality has become increasingly popular in many areas, especially in building a digital campus. This paper introduces a virtual campus, which is based on a 3D model of The Tourism and Culture College of Yunnan University (TCYU). Production of the virtual campus was aided by Human Factor and Ergonomics (HF&E), an…

Katsioloudis, Petros J.; Jovanovic, Vukica – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2014
A quasi experimental study was done to determine significant positive effects among three different types of visual models and to identify whether any individual type or combination contributed towards a positive increase of spatial visualization ability for students in engineering technology courses. In particular, the study compared the use of…

Irwin, John – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2013
The Siemens PLM CAD software NX is commonly used for designing mechanical systems, and in complex systems such as the emerging area of wind power, the ability to have a model controlled by design parameters is a certain advantage. Formula driven expressions based on the amount of available wind in an area can drive the amount of effective surface…

Chandramouli, Magesh; Narayanan, Badri; Bertoline, Gary R. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2013
This study implements a prototype graphics visualization framework to visualize multidimensional data. This graphics design framework serves as a "visual analytical database" for visualization and simulation of economic models. One of the primary goals of any kind of visualization is to extract useful information from colossal volumes of…

Flanders, Megan; Kavanagh, Richard C. – Engineering Design Graphics Journal, 2013
Mental rotations are among the most difficult of all spatial tasks to perform, and even those with high levels of spatial ability can struggle to visualize the result of compound rotations. This pilot study investigates the use of the virtual reality-based Rotation Tool, created using the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) together with…
