Particle Simulations of Plasma Turbulence


Massively Parallel Computations in 3D Geometry
 
The goal of this project was to provide 3D visualization of particle simulations of plasma turbulence. Visualization is based on Science 281, 1835(1998).The dataset has 1,000 time steps with a resolution of 32x321x129. We visualize turbulent electrostatic potential, and show poloidal contour plot, flux-surface contour plot at r/a=0.25, and isosurface of high (red band) and low (blue band) potential.

OBJECT SEGMENTATION RESULTS

Object Segmentation Result of BP0500 dataset. Threshold Value is 0.4. Minimum object size is 200.We use computed volume to color the objects.
