Paper Abstract

In this paper, the recent work on computational flow visualization is reported, which is done by simulating optical flow visualization based on the principle that as light passes through flowfields, its phase and direction are changed due to variations of the refractive index induced by non-uniform density in the flow field. Numerical schlieren and interferogram are constructed for three cases. The research shows that these results can be used to assist high-speed photography in visualizing shock wave phenomena more clearly and validating numerical results more reliably.
