Abstract

Model, perspective drawings and sketches commonly used for studying design are highly time consuming and relatively unsuccessful in assessing effects designs had.
Therefore, an alternative method allowing full evaluation of the environment itseffects including safety has developed.
Adopting computer graphics provides virtual reality allowing the study of the design from different angles gaining artificial experience of driving through the tunnels.
This feature enables:
1. Design fault recognition and presentation in visual form.
2. Design quality improvement, maintenance of certain quality level.
3. Prompt design agreement by concerned parties (client, contractor, local inhabitants)
Computer graphics associated simulation is believed to contribute to structuredesign with regards to quantity and quality.
