Abstract : The objective of the project was to graphically represent data obtained in the course of solving equations of fluid dynamics. Studies of three-dimensional data were done with data arising from a fluid dynamics problem involving high temperatures and velocities. Three representational methods were used: (1) particle tracings showing vectors pointing in the direction of flow at a point, 2) representation of contours, and 3) ray tracing, with color values assigned to a cell depending on the values of some quantity such as density.
