    • A nNon-photorealistic Model for Procedural Painterly Rendered Trees in the Style of Corot 

      Losure, Michael Robert (2009-05-15)
      This thesis describes the development of a system for the procedural generation and painterly rendering of trees. Specifically, the rendered trees are modeled after those found in the oil landscape paintings of 19th century ...
    • A Parametric Model of the Portuguese Nau 

      Cook, Charles (2012-02-14)
      This interdisciplinary research project combines the fields of nautical archaeology and computer visualization in order to create an interactive virtual reconstruction of a Portuguese nau. Information about the shipbuilding ...
    • Particle staining: physically based texture generation 

      Mistrot, Jean Michael (Texas A&M University, 2004-09-30)
      Computers are being employed in a variety of ways by a variety of individuals to create imagery. Much work has been done to accurately model natural phenomena in the context of computer graphics as well as model specific ...
    • A Post-mortem Analysis of Production Process: The Bricklayer's Disaster 

      Bajandas, Nathan Thomas (2012-02-14)
      This thesis is focused on the worthwhile lessons learned while creating a short animated film. The conventional way of teaching related to practice is to have students work on projects and learn from their own experience. ...
    • Re-Creating the Sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald 

      Stewart, Kiara F; Derry, Jasmine; Lee, Yuan-Chi; Hammond, Lauren; Harris, Marisa
      Over the course of the school year, we intend to create a short film centered around the sinking of the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald. Up until this point, there has been thorough research in the conditions surrounding the sinking ...
    • Rendering the Renaissance: A Methodology for Recreating Historical Fabrics and Fashions in Computer Graphics 

      Cleveland, Trisha Anne (2015-08-09)
      Fabric and costume is an integral part of film media and increasingly so in computer graphics. There exists a growing interest in the creation of period films. To stay true to historical accuracy, creating believable, ...
    • A shader based adaptation of selected sixteenth century maps 

      Haque, Shaila Sabrina (Texas A&M University, 2008-10-10)
      This research develops a technique focused on shading and texturing, with an emphasis on line work and color, to emulate the unique qualities of copperplate line-engraving from 16th century cartography. A visual analysis ...
    • Speeding Up the Process of Modeling Temporary Structures in a Building Information Model Using Predefined Families 

      Sabahi, Parsa (2012-02-14)
      It has been less than a decade that Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been used in construction industries. During this short period of time the application of this new modeling approach has increased significantly, ...
    • Study of formation and convective transport of aerosols using optical diagnostic technique 

      Kim, Tae-Kyun (Texas A&M University, 2004-09-30)
      The characteristics of liquid and solid aerosols have been intensively investigated by means of optical diagnostic techniques. Part I describes the characteristics of liquid aerosol formation formed by heat transfer fluids ...
    • Tearable Cloth 

      Phillips, Kurt T. (2010-01-16)
      This document proposes modifications to an established cloth simulation algorithm to allow for stretch deformation and tearing of simulated cloth in computer-generated imagery. Previous research is presented, followed by ...
    • The Naval Architecture of Vasa, a 17th-Century Swedish Warship 

      Rose, Kelby James (2014-07-18)
      The Swedish warship Vasa sank in Stockholm harbor after sailing less than one nautical mile (1.85 km) on its maiden voyage in 1628. The hull was raised in 1961, and after a lengthy conservation and reconstruction process, ...
    • Vision of a Visualization Tool for Commissioning 

      Isakson, P.; Eriksson, J. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 2004)
      A prototype visualisation tool to display long time series of measured data was developed and tested. We report some ideas on the requirements and present our experiences from using the prototype in the evaluation of ...
    • A visual simulation playground for engineering dynamics 

      Fong, Donald Brian (Texas A&M University, 2008-10-10)
      Past educational studies reveal that students have difficulty making the connection between the mathematical and analytical models used to describe building behavior and the behavior itself. This thesis examines the ...
    • Visualization of Ant Pheromone Based Path Following 

      Sutherland, Benjamin T. (2010-07-14)
      This thesis develops a simulation and visualization of a path finding algorithm based on ant pheromone paths created in 3D space. The simulation is useful as a demonstration of a heuristic approach to NP-complete problems ...
    • Visualizing data 

      Ilik, Violeta (Texas Digital Libraries, 2013-05)
      We used Viewshare to visualize three different sets of data. Frist one is a collection of budget reports published by the Texas A&M System. The file was crosswalked from MARCXML to MODS and uploaded to Viewshare as an XML ...
    • Visualizing rhythms of intimacy in email communication 

      Mandic, Mirko (Texas A&M University, 2006-04-12)
      Email has developed into one of the most extensively used computer applications. Email interfaces, on the other hand, have gone through very few transformations since their inception. As the growing volumes of email data ...
