Interactive Visualization: On the way to a virtual wind tunnel

  • Carsten Meiselbach

Part of the Notes on Numerical Fluid Mechanics (NNFM) book series (NONUFM, volume 48)

Summary

In this paper we will give you a short introduction to a visualization program for three dimensional flow data, generated by Navier Stokes solvers (W. Borchers(1992)). First, we will give you a short introduction to the problem. The 2nd section discusses one main problem for simulating flows: the lack of memory. After that we describe the used hardware and the features of our implemented tool for visualizing the flow (sections 3 and 4). At last we show some software details of transposing our software to Open GL/X and Motif. Please refer to two other very interesting works in this volume of Schlageter and Wierse.
