Driven by advances in computer technology, engineering analysis has developed rapidly and extensively in recent times; Visualization of Fields and Applications in Engineering presents the basic techniques for tensor field visualization and mapping of engineering data. Focusing on the fundamental aspects of post processing databases and applications outputs, the author explores existing theories and their integration in tensor field visualization and analysis. The subject covers fundamental theories through to integrated, multi-disciplinary technologies with practical applications in eng
