Abstract:

The ICCanvas 3D visualization program was developed to simplify the study and communication of the results of complex meteorological models and other 3D simulations by exploiting the increasing graphics capabilities of microcomputers. The program allows you to use your personal computer to view level surfaces on structured 3D data, much of which may have been produced by large hydrocodes running on workstations and supercomputers. ICCanvas has been used by DNA to display density distributions of dust and water vapor in 3D simulations of nuclear blast clouds. Together with sophisticated 3D rendering applications, ICCanvas has helped to produce high-quality animated views of the development of a blast cloud featuring footprint projections and multiple semitransparent surfaces.
