Abstract
A recently completed implementation of a virtual environment for the analysis of three- dimensional steady flowfields is described. The hardware consists of a boom-mounted, six- degree-of-freedom head position sensitive stereo CRT system for display, a glove controller for placement of tracer particles within the flow, and a high-performance 3-D graphics workstation for computation and rendering. The flowfields that are visualized using the virtual environment are velocity vector fields defined on curvilinear meshes, and are the steady-state solutions to problems in computational fluid dynamics. The system is applicable to the visualization of other vector fields as well.
