Recently I was involved in helping the Computational Fluid Dynamics group visualize their data using SCIRun, the groups's computational steering/problem solving (depending on which buzzword you like better) environment.
Here are some images from SCIRun - full size versions are available
by clicking on the smaller image. The images depict a single timestep
in a 3d fluid dynamics simulation. Temperature (scalar field) is
displayed by the cutting plane and contour lines; fluid velocity
(vector field) is displayed using streamlines; particles are colored
according to their temperatures.

I have also worked on ray-tracing microsurface-based textures with the Caltech Graphics Group.
