Image-Based Streamsurfaces

In Proceedings of 27th SIBGRAPI Conference on Graphics, Patterns and Images, pp. 343–350, 2014.


Streamsurfaces are of fundamental importance to visualization of flows. Among other features, they offer strong capabilities in revealing flow behavior (e.g., in the vicinity of vortices), and are an essential tool for the computation of 2D separatrices in vector field ... [More ...]
