Mass conservation is a key issue for accurate streamline visualization of flow fields. This paper presents a mass conservative streamline construction method for CFD velocity fields defined at discrete locations in three dimensions for incompressible flows. Linear mass conservative interpolation is used to approximate velocity fields. Demonstration examples are shown.
