Virtual Quarry in Second Life
Pete Radcliff, manager of the e-Dev team at the University of Derby is working in conjunction with the Institute of Quarrying to replicate real quarrying situations: dangerous overhangs; explosions; hazardous working vehicles. Students move around the quarry identifying those hazards. The second edition of the quarry will include spontaneous rock falls, working drilling machines and a replica of a sequenced face explosion.
I’m really glad to see this kind of big engineering application in SL and I’m looking forward to going into the Quarry when i
ts finished. It makes good sense to run this type of simulation in SL.
