The paper presents a topology-based visualization method for time-dependent two-dimensional vector fields. A time interpolation enables the accurate tracking of critical points and closed orbits as well as the detection and identification of structural changes. This completely characterizes the topology of the unsteady flow. Bifurcation theory provides the(More)
Closed streamlines are a missing part in most visu-alizations of vector field topology. In this paper, we propose a method which detects closed streamlines in a time-dependent two-dimensional flow and investigates the behavior of these closed streamlines over time. We search in all timesteps for closed streamlines and connect them to each other in temporal(More)
The complexity of the coronary circulation especially in the deep layers largely evades experimental investigations. Hence, virtual/computational models depicting structure-function relation of the entire coronary vasculature including the deep layer are imperative. In order to interpret such anatomically based models, fast and efficient visualization(More)
Morphology of cardiovascular tissue is influenced by the unsteady behavior of the blood flow and vice versa. Therefore, the pathogenesis of several cardio-vascular diseases is directly affected by the blood-flow dynamics. Understanding flow behavior is of vital importance to understand the cardiovascular system and potentially harbors a considerable value(More)
AIMS Accurate computed tomography (CT)-based reconstruction of coronary morphometry (diameters, length, bifurcation angles) is important for construction of patient-specific models to aid diagnosis and therapy. The objective of this study is to validate the accuracy of patient coronary artery lumen area obtained from CT images based on intravascular(More)
We present the visual analysis of a biologically inspired CFD simulation of the deformable flapping wings of a dragonfly as it takes off and begins to maneuver, using vortex detection and integration-based flow lines. The additional seed placement and perceptual challenges introduced by having multiple dynamically deforming objects in the highly unsteady 3D(More)
