Three-dimensional (3D) simulation is used to display projects over a large area to help users develop a comprehensive understanding of an overall project more efficiently compared to traditional photos and slides frequently used in an educational setting. It allows users around the world to observe synchronized work between various elements in the system both simultaneously and independently. With respect to ancient facilities that have been destroyed over time, 3D simulation provides users with a valuable means to observe and learn how ancient facilities functioned, and also furnishes valuable insights on ancient engineering designs and methods. Combining the most up-to-date information for a sample structure with the ease of use offered by 3D simulation, a Multimedia User-experience System with three-dimensional Simulation (MUSSN) has been developed that allows users to virtually construct an ancient sluice gate on China's Grand Canal in the region of Nanwang Water Diversion Pivotal (NWDP) project in Shandong province. The MUSSN walks students through an interactive series of topics that introduce them to the construction sequence and engineering required to build the NWDP. The combination of a 3D simulated model and a multimedia user-experience system will not only provide students an interactive platform to comprehensively understand the NWDP and the construction sequence of a sluice gate, but also train and improve students’ spatial recognition.
