The Visualisation of Numerical Computation
Parallel processing has now made tractable the numerical solution of large complex mathematical models which are derived from across a whole spectrum of disciplines. Such powerful processing capabilities usually result in a vast amount of data being produced. However full value for this advance can only be realised if the engineer has an effective means of visualising the solution obtained. We need to develop efficient and effective ways of integrating numerical computation and graphical techniques.
