This module may also be utilized to visualize results of other simulation data with user’s creativity.
    2. The displayed cases and factors can be reduced and switched using interactive operations.
    3. Although simplifying the display by grouping too many variables into three or fewer variables and dividing them into groups makes the data of a case to be shown as multiple points, these points can be connected with a line to indicate that they are the same data of a case.
    4. This module enables three dimensional rotation/ zooming/ pan.
    5. This module enables users to switch display items, and to identify whether results satisfy constraints. This visually supports users in making decisions about selecting optimal cases.
    6. Preferences for visualization, such as colors and types of lines and points, and fonts can be customized.

    1. Three dimensional stationary incompressible viscous flow problems can be analyzed.
    2. The Newton method is used for nonlinear analysis.
    3. A stabilized finite element method is used.
    4. Iterative methods as GPBiCG, BiCGSTAB and BiCGSTAB2 can be used.
