AbstractThe visualization of computer simulations is currently undergoing a transition from post-hoc to in-situ visualization in which visualization processes are applied, while the simulation is running. The selection of an appropriate method or tool is essential to efficiently perform in-situ visualization in parallelized large-scale computer simulations that run on supercomputers. Although some generic in-situ visualization libraries are available, they are overengineered for certain

We propose an in-situ visualization method dedicated to the Yin-Yang grid simulations and demonstrate its effectiveness through sample simulations.
