A Visual Approach to Analysis
of Stress Tensor Fields
Andrea Kratz, Bj¨orn Meyer, and Ingrid Hotz
Abstract--We present a visual approach for the exploration of stress tensor fields. Therefore, we introduce the idea of multiple linked
views to tensor visualization. In contrast to common tensor visualization methods that only provide a single view to the tensor field, we
pursue the idea of providing various perspectives onto the data in attribute and object space. Especially in the context of stress tensors,
advanced tensor visualization methods have a young tradition. Thus, we propose a combination of visualization techniques domain
experts are used to with statistical views of tensor attributes. The application of this concept to tensor fields was achieved by extending
the notion of shape space. It provides an intuitive way of finding tensor invariants that represent relevant physical properties. Using
