The goal of this proposal to develop and test a first-of-a-kind environment for the creation of a Virtual Reality System (VRS). It is envisioned that a VRS can benefit both education and research as follows:

  1. offering theoretical and experimental courses, especially distance learning courses and those with laboratories or experiments involving hazardous materials
  2. training of professionals
  3. analysis of results of modeling and simulation of systems
  4. development of tools for management of emergencies
