Abstract

An initial overview of parallel visualization in the GeoFEM software system is provided. Our visualization subsystem offers many kinds of parallel visualization methods for the users to visualize their huge finite-element analysis datasets for scalar, vector and/or tensor fields at a reasonable cost. A polygonal simplification scheme is developed to make the transmission and rendition of output graphic primitives more efficient. A salient feature of the subsystem lies in its capability in the automatic setting of visualization parameter values based on the analysis of scalar/flow field topology and volumetric coherence, to improve the quality of visualization results with a minimized number of batch re-executions. Representative experimental results illustrate the effectiveness of our subsystem.
