Abstract With evolution of PIV experimental technologies, the needs for high performance computer resources,
large scale storage system and advanced visualization engine are getting higher. However, it would be a severe
burden for the researchers to prepare such high performance, large scale, and advanced resources by themselves. On
the other hand, the necessity of collaborative research environment becomes higher day by day in the domain of
flow field. The PIV Virtual Laboratory (PIV-VL) has been developed for establishment of PIV collaborative
research environment, using Grid technology and multi users visualization technique. It is shown that application of
PIV-VL to the calculation and visualization of three dimensional PIV experiment for delta wing is useful.
Visualization is one of the most useful methods for understanding fluid dynamics phenomena. However, there
remain several obstacles to overcome before fluid dynamics scientists and engineers can visualize their simulation
and experimental data: they must learn computer graphics (CG) technique and how to use CG packages, and it is
necessary for them to possess a powerful visualization engine with CG package in their laboratories. An attempt to
solve these two former obstacles has been made (e.g., Toriyama et. al., 1999) from the point of view that establishes
software interface between simulation and measurement data and software package AVS(Advanced Visual Systems,
