Force Visualization

2015

How well can we visualize forces in physics & engineering applications? We know that in real world situations we calculate forces by using computers and formulas, as a design project, I attempted to visualize the invisibles in a more direct way, which is showing the direction and magnitude by light & color.

Red lights are shown when compressive forces are given to the beam.
