The three Dimensional (3D) visualization of time-varying Electromagnetic (EM) data in antenna devices can be used to evaluate various parameters, such as the quality of beams and the power performance of antennas, for optimizing the antenna design. Compared with the single volume data, the time-varying data has characteristics of strong continuity, large scale and multi-variable. It is challenging. We proposed a real-time dynamic rendering method using Compute unified device architecture

We designed the opacity transfer function as multiple trapezoid, which represents each energy band, and provided a fusion strategy for a horn-like surface and a EM volume model that considers the contribution of both intersection points of surface with viewing ray and sample points of the volume. We also proposed a framework for time-varying 3D EM datasets. Two assessment tests were conducted by both experts and students. Results showed that our 3D visualization method were effective.
