Isosurfaces are normally displayed using computer graphics, and are used as data visualisation methods in computational fluid dynamics (CFD), allowing engineers to study features of a fluid flow (gas or liquid) around objects, such as aircraft wings. An isosurface may represent an individual shockwave in supersonic flight, or several isosurfaces may be generated showing a sequence of pressure values in the air flowing around a wing.
