This report addresses issues connected with uncertainties and visualisation in continuous modelling. Many continuous modelling packages, particularly finite element (FE) and continuous fluid dynamics (CFD) packages, produce impressive graphical outputs. These outputs can easily lull the viewer into a false sense of security, and lead the viewer to forget that every measurement should have an associated uncertainty.
The need for uncertainties to be associated with model results and visualisations of results leads to two questions that need to be asked for each visualisation:
