Published on

Short Presentation on the use of Augmented Reality to visualize Computational Results. In this work results obtained using Star CCM+, Vuforia and Unity 3D are presented. Test Case BMW Z3. The present Scenario and a possible future Scenario are described. The strategy successfully deals with other CFD, FEM and Meshless codes simulating a variety of different simulations (combustion, buildings, mixing, aerodynamics...)
