Visualization Of Reacting Gas Flows On Non-structured Grids
Free (open access)
C. Best & D. Roebbelen
A software package TURCOM has been developed to visualize the results of 2-d fluid dynamics modelling on non-structured grids. This software is written in the PV-WAVE command language  and runs on most graphic workstations. Calculations are performed of chemically reacting gases within containers of variable geometry . A database is used to store the results together with the grid geometry . This database is accessed by TURCOM via mouse-driven menus and icons. An objective of this work has been to avoid interpolation onto regular grids. Therefore some new algorithms have been developed to present the results of model calculations graphically. Scalar fields can be displayed as iso-contours or as colour shaded iso-plots. Vector fields can be displayed as vector flows with or without a scalar colour index. Visualization of the time evolution of data is also possible.
