MayaVi: A Free Tool for CFD Data Visualization
Visualizing CFD data is extremely important. There are very few freely available tools that allow one to visualize scalar and vector data on rectilinear, structured and unstructured grids. MayaVi is a free tool developed by the author that helps visualize such CFD data. It uses the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) for the actual visualization and provides a useful graphical user interface to make visualizing the data easy. This paper describes the tool and the basis for its development.
