Wind Tunnel Data Fusion and Visualization in an Immersive Environment: A Case Study. Kurt Severance, Paul Brewster, Barry Lazos, Daniel F. Keefe. Proceedings of IEEE Visualization 2001 (2001) pp. 505–508
This case study describes the process of fusing the data from several wind tunnel experiments into a single coherent visualization. Each experiment was conducted independently and was designed to explore different flow features around airplane landing gear. In the past, it would have been very difficult to correlate results from the different experiments. However, with a single 3-D visualization representing the fusion of the three experiments, significant insight into the composite flowfield was observed that would have been extremely difficult to obtain by studying its component parts. The results are even more compelling when viewed in an immersive environment.
