    ; ; Khalilb Marwan

    Due to wake losses, the power production of wind farms depend on the positioning of turbines in relation to each other, i.e. the wind farm layout. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) can be used for solving the complex flow in a wind farm since wake effects are inherently simulated.

  • The Ultrasound Visualization Pipeline

    ; Åsmund Birkeland, University of Bergen; Dieter Hönigmann; Odd Helge Gilja; Svein Brekke; Timo Ropinski; Ivan Viola, University of Bergen, Norway, Vienna University of Technology, Austria

    Ultrasound is one of the most frequently used imaging modality in medicine. The high spatial resolution, its interactive nature and non-invasiveness makes it the first choice in many examinations. Image interpretation is one of ultrasound’s main challenges. Much training is required to obtain a confident skill level in ultrasound-based diagnostics. State-of-the-art graphics techniques is needed to provide meaningful visualizations of ultrasound in real-time.

  • Visibility-Driven Processing of Streaming Volume Data

    ; Åsmund Birkeland, University of Bergen; Ivan Viola, University of Bergen, Norway, Vienna University of Technology, Austria; Stefan Bruckner, University of Bergen, Norway

    In real-time volume data acquisition, such as 4D ultrasound, the raw data is challenging to visualize directly without additional processing. Noise removal and feature detection are common operations, but many methods are too costly to compute over the whole volume when dealing with live streamed data. In this paper, we propose a visibility-driven processing scheme for handling costly on-the-fly processing of volumetric data in real-time.

  • Rapid Modelling of Interactive Geological Illustrations with Faults and Compaction

    Mattia Natali; ; Julius Parulek

    In this paper, we propose new methods for building geological illustrations and animations. We focus on allowing geologists to create their subsurface models by means of sketches, to quickly communicate concepts and ideas rather than detailed information. The result of our sketch-based modelling approach is a layer-cake volume representing geological phenomena, where each layer is rock material which has accumulated due to a user-defined depositional event.

    Dielectric properties of crude oils play an important role in characterization and quality control. Measuring permittivity accurately over a wide range of frequencies is, however, a time-consuming task and existing measurement methods are not easily adapted for real-time diagnostics. IR spectroscopy, on the other hand, provides rapid measurements of fundamental molecular properties.

  • Geological storytelling

    Endre M. Lidal; ; Mattia Natali, Helwig Hauser, Ivan Viola

    Developing structural geological models from exploratory subsea imaging is difficult and an ill-posed process. The structural geological processes that take place in the subsurface are both complex and time-dependent. We present Geological Storytelling, a novel graphical system for performing rapid and expressive geomodeling. Geologists can convey geological stories that externalize both their model and the reasoning process behind it through our simple, yet expressive sketch-based, flip-over canvases.

  • Rapid Sketch-based 3D Modeling of Geology

    E. M. Lidal; ; ; M. Bendiksen and I. Viola

    Petroleum reservoir model building is a fundamental but complex task present in all stages of oil/gas exploration and production (E&P).

  • Lowest-Variance Streamlines for Filtering of 3D Ultrasound

    ; Linn Emilie Sævil Helljesen, Wolfgang Wein, Odd Helge Gilja, Ivan Viola

    Ultrasound as an acoustic imaging modality suffers from various kinds of noise. The presence of noise especially hinders the 3D visualization of ultrasound data, both in terms of resolving the spatial occlusion of the signal by surrounding noise, and mental decoupling of the signal from noise.

  • Illustrative Membrane Clipping

    Å. Birkeland; S. Bruckner, A. Brambilla, I. Viola

    Clipping is a fast, common technique for resolving occlusions. It only requires simple interaction, is easily understandable, and thus has been very popular for volume exploration. However, a drawback of clipping is that the technique indiscriminately cuts through features.

    Endre M. Lida; Helwig Hauser, Ivan Viola

    In this paper, we present design principles for cutaway visualizations that emphasize shape and depth communication of the focus features and their relation to the context. First, to eliminate cutaway-flatness we argue that the cutaway axis should have an angular offset from the view direction. Second, we recommend creating a box-shaped cutaway.
