Visualization is a novel interdisciplinary science for making any phenomenon clear by visualizing the invisible using computer techniques. The Atlas of Visualization presents the latest advances in visualization techniques, image processing, computer graphics, and visualization of measured and compound results. Focusing on both experimental and computer-aided visualization, this encyclopedic resource discusses all aspects of this new and evolving science. This volume includes cutting-edge information on turbulent flow, vortex, water spray, PIV, jet flames, thermal plume and numerical simulation, and heat and mass transfer.

Encompasses all aspects of visualization!

The Atlas of Visualization is concerned with all aspects of visualization, not just with engineering and physics applications, but with applications in disciplines such as the biomedical sciences, oceanography, agriculture, meteorology, and sports science. The aim of this book is to provide a medium for announcing the latest advances in visualization.

Full color presentation!

Books on visualization could not discuss complex phenomena without the use of color photographs. For this reason, the Atlas of Visualization is issued in full color. This allows the complex phenomena to be presented clearly, and combined phenomena are illustrated with quantitative results and detailed structure.

Global perspective!

The chapters and gravures in the Atlas are contributed by the world's top researchers, and provides both researchers and technicians with extremely useful information from the foremost innovators in the field of visualization. Computer scientists, mechanical engineers, physicists, applied and biological scientists, meteorologists, and sports scientists, as well as students of these disciplines, will find the Atlas of Visualization an essential source of all the latest knowledge in the field of visualization.
