Ames Lab 101: C6 Virtual Engineering

Ames Laboratory scientist Doug McCorkle explains the importance of virtual engineering and talks about the C6. The C6 is a three-dimensional, fully-immersive synthetic environment residing in the center atrium of Iowa State University's Howe Hall.  McCorkle is part of Ames Laboratory's Simulation, Modeling and Decision Science program and has helped developed two R&D award-winning software programs that allow scientists to walk through virtual models of power plant or other designs and address potential problems.
