Preface This book is the result of an accumulation of work done by the authors and their students over the past twelve years. In each of the years listed, 8-10 students were brought to the University of Washington for a summer REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program, supported by a REU Grant from the NSF. We want to thank the NSF for its(More)

We discuss an interactive environment for the visualization, analysis, and modiication of computational models used in industrial settings. In particular, we focus on interactively placing massless, massed, and evaporating particulate matter in computational uid dynamics applications. We discuss the numerical model used to compute the particle pathlines in(More)
Most software packages available for particle tracing focus on visualizing steady or unsteady vector elds by using massless particle trajectories. For many applications, however, the use of massed and evaporating particles would provide a model of physical processes that could be used in product testing or design. In this article we describe the TrackPack(More)
