Visualization of Advection-Diffusion in Unsteady Fluid Flow

Computer Graphics Forum, vol. 31, no. 3, pp. 1105–1114, 2012.


Advection has been the standard transport mechanism in flow visualization. Diffusion, in contrast, has not been considered important in visual flow field analysis so far, although it is inherent to many physical processes. We present a novel technique that allows for in... [More ...]
