Abstract [en]

This chapter introduces a visualization method specifically tailored to the class of tensor fields with properties similar to stress and strain tensors. Such tensor fields play an important role in many application areas such as structure mechanics or solid state physics. The presented technique is a global method that represents the physical meaning of these tensor fields with their central features: regions of compression or expansion. The method consists of two steps: first, the tensor field is interpreted as a distortion of a flat metric with the same topological structure; second, the resulting metric is visualized using a texture-based approach. The method supports an intuitive distinction between positive and negative eigenvalues.
