Abstract : The objective of this project was to begin filling the need for visualization. A set of tools has been developed to aid in analyzing the results of our FEM computations. Tools facilitating the display of both scalar and vector quantities were included. The toolset was developed utilizing the graphics routines and features available in a commercial scientific visualization package - the Application Visualization System (AVS) . The attempt was made to give the user as much control over the visualization environment as possible with a minimum amount of knowledge of the underlying software. The project was begun on an IBM RS6OOO computer. During the toolset development, the work was ported to a SUN SPARCstation 20 and it was completed there. This thesis describes the development of these visualization tools for use in the AVS environment. (AN)
