Topology in Fluid Flow Visualization

24 June 2011 - 24 June 2011

This event is part of an intensive research period:
Knots and Applications.


In order to study and understand flow phenomena, visualization approaches have become a common tool. This is due to the fact that the human visual system can process large amounts of information in a very short time. Among the variety of existing visualization techniques, topological methods play an important role because they are suited to describe complex phenomena by using a low number of graphical primitives.

The present workshop will provide an overview of modern visualization approaches based on flow topology for unsteady flows. Implementation of new ideas, current challenges and limitations of such techniques are discussed as well as new potential areas of application. As part of the workshop, recent results from the ongoing EU FET-Open project SemSeg will be presented.
