This paper examines the applicability of various visualisation methods for displaying results of finite element flow simulations. After a brief overview of transport phenomena, their modelling equations and finite element modelling, the special options and requirements of visualisation are discussed. Thereafter, various possible methods are evaluated for every type of data calculated. Finally, rendering techniques and additional effects are explained.

KEYWORDS: finite element, mesh generation, illuminated streamlines, fake Phong method.
