Abstract : Numerical simulations produce huger and huger meshes that can reach dozens of million tetrahedra. These datasets must be visually analyzed to understand the physical simulated phenomenon and draw conclusions. The computational power for scientific visualization of such datasets is often smaller than for numerical simulation. As a consequence, interactive exploration of massive meshes is barely achieved. In this document, we propose a new interactive method to interactively explore massive tetrahedral meshes with over forty million tetrahedra. This method is fully integrated into the simulation process, based on two meshes at different resolutions -- one fine mesh and one coarse mesh -- of the same simulation. A partition of the fine vertices is computed guided by the coarse mesh. It allows the on-the-fly extraction of a mesh, called \textit{biresolution}, mixed of the two initial resolutions as in usual multiresolution approaches. The extraction of such meshes is carried out into the main memory (CPU), the last generation of graphics cards (GPU) and with an out-of-core algorithm. They guarantee extraction rates never reached in previous work. To visualize the biresolution meshes, a new direct volume rendering (DVR) algorithm is fully implemented into graphics cards. Approximations can be performed and are evaluated in order to guarantee an interactive rendering of any biresolution meshes.
