"The objective of this proposal is to develop easy to use, fast and efficient next generation visualization techniques that utilize client-server architecture, parallel processors and domain knowledge for the analysis and post-processing of large-scale,time dependent, rotorcraft, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) data sets. Large-scale, time-dependent 3D simulations of complex configurations using CFD have become increasingly critical in the design of aircraft, rotorcraft, aerospace vehicles andpropulsion systems. As the pace of simulation increases, the sheer volume of numerical data makes it increasingly critical that a stable and easy to operate post-processing/visualization methodology be developed. Technology innovations in this proposedwork will focus on robust streakline integration, visualization techniques optimized for rotorcraft grids, high-speed access of data on remote computers and development of an Intelligent Graphical Object (IGO) database for the highly interactive 3D displayof transient data including streaklines, streamlines, iso-surfaces, cutting planes, boundary surfaces and vortex cores. These visualization techniques, if fully developed, can have a significant impact on government and industry's ability to post-processlarge-scale time-dependent CFD simulation data. Large-scale, time-dependent 3D simulations of complex configurations using CFD have becoming increasingly critical in the design of aircraft, rotor
