Time-Dependent Flow Visualization

Helwig Hauser, Alexander Kuhn, Armin Pobitzer, Maik Schulze

MISC, February, 2012

Abstract

Vector fields are a common representation of many kinds of dynamic phenomena in a large variety of application fields. A particularly interesting class of vector fields represent time-dependent flows, i.e., flows where the vectors change over time themselves. A lot of good and relevant research work has been done on the question of how to visualize such unsteady vector fields and an overview is presented in this tutorial. In particularly, we emphasize Lagrangian methods, space-time domain approaches, and interactive visual analysis as three interesting and promising types of methodology. The tutorial is also introduced with some general remarks, in particular also on the question of why it often is not straight forward to extend methods that originally were developed for steady flows to the domain of unsteady flows. A number of examples illustrate the overview.
