Master Thesis Defining Materials in an Automotive Environment to Support

Summary: Master Thesis
Defining Materials in an Automotive Environment to Support
Realistic Virtual Evaluation
Virtual development is an important concept in today's product
development environment. By implementing virtual development, the
number of physical mockups and prototypes may be minimized, which
in turn will decrease project time and cost. In the automotive industry,
virtual evaluation is of special importance throughout the whole project.
This has to do with the fact that several loops are executed in the
concept phase, the detailed design phase and the industrialization
phase. In these loops, realistic outcomes of the final product, or its
manufacturing environment, are simulated and evaluated.
An important part in this environment is to simulate and visualize the
effects of geometrical variation and how it affects the customers overall
perception, Perceived Quality, of the vehicle. In these visualization
models, high fidelity representation of material appearance is desired to
increase realism.
Develop a general toolbox for modeling and capturing (from spectral measurements) materials for real
