Tumble-Vortex Core Line Extraction

In Proceedings of SIBGRAPI WVIS, 2017.


In this paper, we focus on the extraction of vortex core lines from 3D vector fields containing tumble vortices, i.e., vortices with vanishing longitudinal velocity component. While there exist many different definitions for vortex core lines, these are typically formul... [More ...]
