Finite element post-processing has been dominated by software that is tightly integrated with simulation packages. Many of these packages have not kept up with the state-of-the-art developments in graphics technology and visualization techniques. Especially the large and time-dependent data sets resulting from crash-worthiness simulations in the automotive(More)
Numerical finite element simulations of the behavior of a car body in frontal, side or rear impact collision scenarios have become increasingly complex as well as reliable and precise. They are well established as a standard evaluation tool in the automotive development process. Both, the increased complexity plus the advances in computer graphics(More)
Regarding the increasing complexity of computer simulations on one hand and the development of computer technology in the last few years on the other hand, the demand on new visualization techniques to analyze the immense amount of data originating from scientiic calculations has reached new dimensions. In the case of crashworthiness simulations, expanding(More)
A very eecient way to analyze computer simulations is to integrate the visualization of the results into video sequences. However, most postprocessors available today in the area of car crash simulations do not support the direct assembly of images into video. We have developed a software tool that allows for the annotation of images with text and graphics(More)
