Texture Based Flow Visualization in Augmented and Virtual Reality Environments.
Virtual and Augmented Reality allows a new way of result exploration of numerical simulations, its analysis and interpretation by immersing the user into the data sets and/or by keeping the relationship and context to the real environment. Up to date only a few approaches targeting the deployment of augmented reality during the analysis stage have been published. New texture based visualization tools emerged and conciliate a better understanding of the flow fields. This paper describes our approach for integrating texture based visualization methods within a mixed reality set-up by introducing a 'low cost', fully 3D interactive post processing unit for CFD data sets.
