A Survey of Interface Tracking Methods in Multi-phase Fluid Visualization

Fang Chen & Hans Hagen
A central feature that scientists are interested in is the dynamics of fluid interfaces or the so called material boundaries in multi-fluid simulation . Visualization techniques for capturing fluid interface are based on one of about three basic algorithms. In this paper, we give a survey of the existing interface tracking algorithms, including backgrounds, terms, procedures as well as pointers to details and further reading. We also provide a glance at the mathematical fundamentals of...
