FLUID DYNAMICS

Merging hybrid-reality visualization tools with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools to simulate airflow phenomena at the urban scale.

 

Traces exported to Rhino_PerspectiveThe Fluid Dynamics research project merges hybrid-reality visualization tools with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools to simulate airflow phenomena at the urban scale. A unique multi-platform workflow is developed to tie commercially available CFD analysis software with hybrid-reality simulation techniques at the IDVL, enabling new visualization experiences with CFD data from multiple perspectives and across scales. Urban fluid dynamics research methods are tested with engineering research at the SyracuseCOE Flow Visualization Lab for visual translation of fluid flow data at multiple scales.
