DescriptionVisualization is a very useful tool in the study and analysis of huge experimental or simulation datasets. It converts vast amount of numerical data into graphical images, extracts important hidden information and aids scientists in hypothesis building. This thesis focuses on migrating visualization module of Plasma Edge from commercial visualization software AVS to open source visualization library VTK. The VTK visualization module will be integrated in new plasma edge simulation code package at the Center for Plasma Edge Simulation for the study of plasma edge region relevant to both existing magnetic fusion facilities and next generation burning plasma experiments. VTK visualization module generates two set of images: 2D images representing cross-sectional view of 3D torroidal plane, and 3D images representing whole torroidal plane.
Two Adobe Flash modules were also developed using open source Adobe Flex to integrate the VTK visualization module with eSimMon dashboard, a front-end tool for simulation monitoring. Using these modules, virtual 3D visualization capability was provided in the dashboard for viewing generated plasma images.
