Abstract

The parallel implementation of volume visualisation offers the potential of solving this computationally complex problem in reasonable times. This paper discusses the preferred bias strategy for allocating tasks to processing elements. This strategy is able to exploit both spatial and temporal coherence within the problem domain between successive frames to improve the effectiveness of the distributed memory management system and thus increase overall system performance. Tree and torus configurations are also investigated to determine the effect configurations have on the parallel implementation of volume visualisation on large multiprocessor systems.
