Title: A 3D Vector/Scalar Visualization and Particle Tracking Package

Abstract

BOILERMAKER is an interactive visualization system consisting of three components: a visualization component, a particle tracking component, and a communication layer. The software, to date, has been used primarily in the visualization of vector and scalar fields associated with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models of flue gas flows in industrial boilers and incinerators. Users can interactively request and toggle static vector fields, dynamic streamlines, and flowing vector fields. In addition, the user can interactively place injector nozzles on boiler walls and visualize massed, evaporating sprays emanating from them. Some characteristics of the spray can be adjusted from within the visualization environment including spray shape and particle size. Also included with this release is software that supports 3D menu capabilities, scrollbars, communication and navigation.

Documentation is in the form of html WEB pages and require a viewer to read. The CAVElib, OpenInventor, GLU libraries, and perhapsd VSS are proprietary software that must be licensed from the appropriate vendor.
Related Software:
CAVElib 2.5.4 or 2.5.5 software licensed through EVL/Pyramid systems, GLU libraries available from SGI graphics software, NexusLite v3.0 libraries (ANL released software no restrictions), OpenInventor v2.1 (SGI software), and VSS (Vanilla Sound Server 2.0) NCSA software. The audio files add context to the simulation, but they are not critical.
